A few years ago we had a wicked storm in Duluth in the summer that took down power lines and transmitters blew all over town. We did not have power for 5 days and it was absolutely miserable. Many businesses near our house  were without power as well so we had to think fast about how we were going to get by. We went through a lot of ice but our coolers and other supplies were absolute life savers. For me probably the hardest thing was sleeping in the heat with no fan and only being able to use my cell phone very sparingly. Before summer storms hit, make sure you stock up on all of these supplies so you and your family will be able to weather the storm.
