I have gas heat. Is that still working? If not, I'd start a fire
in the fireplace and stay close by.
Oh, wait. I live in central Texas. Although it is occasionally
freezing cold it never stays freezing cold for long.
I like the "complain about the government" answer, too. I might
do that some.
There's always the car. It has a heater. I could sit in there until
I run out of gas. If possible, I'd go buy more gas.

I'm dying to find out.
Start my generator! I have 2, just in case:)
If no gas for heat, then drain what water lines I could, antifreeze in
toilet bowls, and if no wood stove go to neighbors with fireplace.
although some think this question funny, its serious.
a terrorist could take out power / heat in winter causing so much
its going to happen one day.............
good point, it happens all the time with only a little help from Ma
Nature, imagine what could happen if someone actually did this
continue heating the house if gas service is still available. If not, hook up
the propane space heater and crack a window open to allow fresh air in
(necessary for the space heater and to avoid CO problems) - also move my digital
CO monitor to an outlet nearest the heater and keep a very close eye on it.
I also happen to be blond.
Oh yeah, nobody's mentioned FEMA yet, I think I'd give them a call and
ask them to pay for me to stay indefinitely in a hotel.
I'm the blond lady - I'm the one who got the generator going and connected to
the transfer box because, being unencumbered by testosterone, I:
1. planned ahead
2. read the directions
Take that! :-P
Build a fire in the woodburner and /or drag in the Kero-Sun heater
from the garage (even if they do smell)
A dumb blonde would plug in an electric space heater, start having a
tizzy fit when it did not work, and drive to Walmart to buy a new
electric space heater. (which of course would be returned to walmart
an hour later and exchanged for another, and that would continue till
either the power came back on, or the car ran out of gas, or the
Walmart customer service dept. refused any more exchanges.
Of course there's the blonde that lives next door. She's just walk
over to the neighbor to trade some sex for some heat, then start
whining when she found he had no heat too..... And we all know what
happens to a man's sexual abilities when his body gets chilled. :)
WOW, a smart blonde. That's rare, maybe you can get into the guiness
book of records <>LOL<>
