We’ve all experienced temporary power outages. Sometimes they come in the middle of the night; at other times they  come right in the middle of our favorite sports show. Frustrating, and an inconvenience, they generally don’t last for very long. 

It’s one thing to endure an inconvenient power outage for a day or two; it’s another to be one of thousands without power in a city or larger area, perhaps in the dead of winter. Or at the other end of the scale, you could be where temperatures soar to well over 110 degrees during summer months. In one instance you are at risk of freezing to death; in another you are at risk of heatstroke or more.  Your family will soon get used to the absence of television and movies and other electronic appendages. There will be other things to worry about.
