This whole thread feels like the same answers as before…
I’ve been lucky, when the power’s gone out for a few days. Fridge and freezer weren’t too full, had nearby areas with power to get food from, was cold out but not very cold. Other than cold showers and flashlights, everything was normal. (That’d have been because the bathroom fan wasn’t fanning, wanted to take fast showers.)
Irma, 2017. Killed the power all the way from South Florida thru bits of Georgia. I’m in GA, most of my family in Florida. I was sick as a dog, no power no water and nowhere to go anyway. Five days, I think? Felt like longer.
Afterward, I made sure to get coolers (turn a fridge/freezer back into an old “icebox”), battery packs (had one, but why not two?), solar charger pack (feed those battery packs; then they have stored energy enough to charge a laptop [just an example] when directly-from-solar might fall short of charge-capable on a particular device), propane grill/range, gas tank, siphon, battery-powered fan, rechargeable lights a-plenty (thankfully already had), and other items. Thankfully already had stuff like an emergency radio with solar & a dyno crank for power generation and other emergency kit / camping stuff.
Fell short of getting a portable generator or vehicle-based inverter at this time, but I’ll keep my eyes peeled if either of those show up here on Meh.
Kinda funny how stuff that’s good for camping can also be good for an emergency & vice-versa. I’ll be using some of this while camping in the future so it’s not just in case of an emergency (also get more familiarized with it.)
