Me either,..we solved the Electrical issue with 2 dual mode Generators, one if we Bug in, is a 5000 Watt cont. & 6,000 Peak,.and the smaller one is 2500/3000 and goes anywhere...they also have storage batteries and recharge through solar as well..
We also formed a "Mutual Assistance Group" with several other friends here,...

We went thru an ice storm in West Ky in 09, 21 days at my house without power, I was just fine , heat and cook with wood stove, plenty food stored, plenty water, (well).

OTOH, the gas stations, stores, grocery stores, were n0t prepared , and therefore no gas, no supplies or food of anykind after first 2 days.

Me and mine made it 3 weeks JUST FINE.

Coulda went lots longer.
I got pond full of fish, chickens for eggs, and meat, plenty rabbit ,squirrel , deer, a years supply of canned garden veggies ( until next garden) got all seeds sealed and stored.

I have generators also, but if no gas, ???
