So I woke up this morning at about 5am to a loud clunk outside, and I noticed the power was out. High winds here in Pittsburgh today. (It was supposed to be snowy, so I'll take it.)

Anyway, luckily we have a gas-powered hot water heater, a gas stove, a stove-top coffee maker, and battery-powered alarm clocks. I also liked having a battery powered radio for my morning news and liked having the big flashlight so she could see. (I can see in very dim light.)
