Nice idea.

A couple of resources:

For those of us who aren't impacted but would like to help:

@Joe Nation,
But, but, if the power goes out, your alarm might be late. I say, start drinkin' now. Avoid the rush.

It is ... eep ... I know the pressure drop is making me feel worse, but this is rather unpleasant.

Already switched the cordless phone over to corded, so we will at least have a phone (but no machine) if the outages persist. That way, we can get robocalls in the dark.

@ehBeth,
Same here. Shmancy newer phone is now staying in the plant room for the duration. Cel phone has full battery power but is off for the nonce.

Cripes, it is blowin' out there.

Wifi is only effected if the electricity goes down.

Fresh baked hurricane brownies have now been born straight from the oven. They're in the cooling down stage.
