Winds dying down as power restored; some schools still closed This week we experienced high winds in the region, which in the NW equates to trees down and power outages normally. Per PSE which serves a majority of the region, there where over 200K without power this week, for various periods of outages. At the same time, the temperatures here have plummeted making those without power, very uncomfortable and miserable. Many have lost power for days.... and plenty of them have had to go to their families homes elsewhere, shelters or hotels with power, due to the fact they are unprepared for the cold weather & loss of power for their heaters. Are you ready for loss of power....... and able to fend off the cold? Post-SHTF, shelter will be a daily issue of survival to stay warm and out of the elements. What have you done to be ready for that circumstance?
