Coping with Power Outages

Sudden power outages can be frustrating and troublesome, especially when they last a long time.  If a power outage is 2 hours or less, don't be concerned about losing your perishable foods.  For prolonged power outages, though, there are steps you can take to minimize food loss and to keep all members of your household as comfortable as possible.
