Power Outage Tips from Powered by Mom
I’ve been hearing about people all over the US and Canada who’ve had power outages some for days at a time. We were lucky our last power outage which was just about a week ago only lasted for six hours. This got me thinking though that we could all share our power outage tips and ideas on how to be prepared and survive power outages.
One thing we always have in our house in case of a power outage is a phone that is not cordless, doesn’t require power but can be plugged directly into the phone line but does not have to be plugged into an electrical outlet. In the case of the last power outage that we had we plugged in one of my daughter’s old phones a Princess phone and yes it worked. We used this to call people instead of our cell phones so that we did waste our phone batteries.
