Yeah, we had 3 days of 1h of electricity for every 6-9h of outage at our house. Gas fireplace with ceramic logs and gas stove saved our bacon. We all slept in the living room by the fire (2 adults, 2 kids, 2 dogs, 2 cats, 1 snake), and put up blankets/comforters to block it off and keep the heat in that area of the house. We normally buy in bulk, and saw this coming, so had plenty of food & water. If a pipe had burst downstairs, we'd have had to go somewhere else to stay the week. I hate to hear you're going through similar circumstance. Glad you're doing okay for now, PM if I can do anything to help.
