Sorry to hear about your situation.
Our hope & prayer is that it will be over soon without any lasting effects.
Several years ago we had a bad ice storm that killed power to the rural areas for 6-7 days. We were only out here in town for 36 hours but it gave us reason to be better prepared.
Hang in there. For all things there is a season and this too will pass.

You guys down in Texas gotta worry about the power going out in August. If a T-storm leaves you without power for 2-3 days you 'all will melt.

Makes you wonder how their grand parents ever survived?????????? :p

I'm not BIG into the SHTF thing but I do believe it is good to be prepared for most situations. After the Ice Storm back in 2004, we had a Free Standing Natural Gas Stove installed for emergency heat. We keep extra food on hand and a variety of camping gear & supplies. Worst case, we could move into our small travel trailer.

I had that happen in my youth. We had a generator, but wouldn't you know it a limited supply of gas.

To hear my Grandparents tell it, they didn't know any better but wouldn't live without it ever again.

We've been starting on stocking up on some stuff.
Last year was the first time we tried canning . Got some peaches and jalapeno jelly .
Got a dehydrator last year and done some assorted fruits and veggies with that as well .
Trying to stock up on stuff that lasts without fridge or freezer.

I'm preparing for the next politician to get elected. Because I'm sick of Americans fighting one another like a bunch of school kids.

Used to be 50+ year old conservatives didn't go down to the Mall in DC for rallies and if I go on the 24th, it'll be my third one. Two "tea parties" and Beck's get together at the Lincoln Memorial - great times with good people!
