Use up battery on iPhone.  Take it out to car and plug into car charger.  Start car.  Wait for magnetic action.  Blam-o, you're back online!  Fucking alternator battery magnets!

For one thing, start a list of alternate means to keep your power-hungry phone charged when the power goes out.



This is an excellent start.

I'm guessing you're a victim of the 'rolling blackouts.' Get a book and wait it out. They say 45 min. is about as long as they last. If you've been out for hours and it's not because of the blackouts............get a book and a blanket and wait it out. Sorry.

Make sure your snowfort has high walls, makes lobbing snow grenades into it harder for the enemy. make a center tower to mount a .50 on. reinforce the doors, one in the front and one in the back. be careful!

When I still lived in NY, I went for a week without power during the October Storm.  cool pictures of it here

It was the happiest and most well rested I have been in my adult life.  I read books when there was day light, and went to bed when it got dark (bundled under many blankets).  Enjoy it.

Serve sausage to said pie provider. <––- Yeah, like that.



Go for a walk.

Read a book.

Clean your kitchen. I mean, really clean your kitchen.

Balance your check book.

Make snowmen.  You do have snow down there?

Play board games.

Pie.  



And get some personal time with said sammich maker.  She says you don't spend enough time together and talk, cuddle, yada yada yada.  Now's a perfect time.  Why?  Becuase the Super Bowl is on Sunday, and you want to have that time uninterupted and free of her guilting you out of your "me" time with the game.





When you make her happy now, you prevent her making you unhappy later.
