Re: Learning to live with less than 2K a day
OK, I can see it if you have medical issues but if you can't last two weeks without electricity there is a lot wrong with your life. In 1985, after Hurricane Kate, we had no power for two weeks, no problem. We used the camping stove, hauled water in 5 gal jugs and used our caving lamps for light. We never bothered to ask when it would come back on but one day it did.
On your boat what do you do? Surely you dont need 1000 watts aboard. My boat might manage 50 watts for a couple hours but what do you do with all that power?
At this time of Fall, it isnt yet THAT cold even in Mass. Don' you have quilts?
Get out the grill and cook any meat thawing in your freezer, have a block party of it Happed to me once).
