10 days without power on the cape? Wow!
They're supposed to receive very high winds with this storm.
We were about 30 hours without power last week: Thursday morning to Friday afternoon. Temperature was 51 in the house. I just bundle up. Top: t-shirt, 2 long-sleeve t-shirts and sweatshirt. Bottom: boxer briefs, mid-calf socks, two layers thermal underwear, sweatpants.
The street that always loses power has overhead lines that supply power to 300 homes. I think we are sort of a priority to get back online.
Aside from no heat, we do o.k. Have water since we have city water. So we have water and can use the toilets. Water heater is gas-fired, so we even have hot water for showers. Gas cooktop that I can light with a match, so I can cook.
Just bring up the old coffee percolator from the basement. Really do need to practice with that, though. My percolator coffee must be the world's worst coffee.
