smart phone with 3g/4g service..Or if you have a generator, cable service should stay up for 4-6 hrs after power is lost..The have back up power supplies as long as the lines stay up..

you could also use smoke signals or homing pigeons?[wink]

Seriously. National Grid is a F'n joke!
unitil is worse. for all the days and days i've lost power in the past three years you'd think that national grid would at least credit me rather than change the meter sneakily and then not bill me for a month and slap me with a $600 bill the next month.

your tight sphincter
Beer still chill and bacon is defrosted and ready.
1/2 barrel has a large thermal mass. Stays cold hours after power. If kegerator is left closed, stays cold for days....

drove by newton welesley hospital and power was f'ing gone in Newton. It's all of those frumpy liberals who make laws against trimming "historic trees" f'ing everyone. Power company can't trim tree branches, old tree gets a slow gust of wind, branch falls off and destroys power grid for everyone.

talk about tree huggers, huh.
