Okay, found a news article about it: https://www.npr.org/sections/live-updates-2020-election-results/2020/11/06/932376507/trump-dumps-3-agency-leaders-in-wake-of-election
“The Trump administration abruptly dumped the leaders of three agencies that oversee the nuclear weapons stockpile, electricity and natural gas regulation, and overseas aid during the past two days, drawing a rebuke from a prominent Republican senator for one of the decisions.”

Wait, water? I thought I had to keep stuff dry (maybe even with dessicant)?

OK, ours is a power outage.
Will I be likely to lose electricity if this emergency happens? Yes, by definition.
Will I have running water? Nope – well pump will be out.
Will I be able to purchase more food and supplies or will I have to rely on what I have already? Probably. We rarely have all our area’s commercial sector lose power at the same time.
Will I have to evacuate? Possibly, depending on the weather at the time. The gas fireplace will keep our house from freezing in standard winter cold (though probably not a polar vortex), but it can be pretty uncomfortable. Extreme summer heat would be uncomfortable as well.
Are there any members of my family who will be particularly affected? Yes. We have small children. Extreme temperatures and boredom affect them greatly. I’m not above a trip to that cow-themed chicken restaurant for food, play, and normalcy during an outage.

A power outage is most likely, though we might also consider other runners up, like a job loss or sudden health issue, a severe snow/ice storm in the winter, or even a tornado.

No worries at all! I’ll have to see if I can find the link again to share. 🙂

Thanks so much for the new place to chat! Daisy and Selco, heads up that the language in the “Links to other websites” section might need some editing. Or at least I would propose a few changes?

Yeah, big changes in the utility world concern me, too, given how we have enemies who have been working on taking down parts of the grid.

Way to go! I need to get started shopping. But I did get my pantry reorganized to fit the extra I bought in case of election trouble, and that’s not nothing. 🙂

Same here – 2 bottles. Don’t ask how much we already had in the closet…
