I stumbled upon this in some e-mails awhile back and thought it was pretty funny. I went through a pretty bad wind storm here in KY and we lost power for 7 days straight so I can attest to the truth is many of these statements..

This is from someone who is on Day 13 without power in his home........

Things IKE taught me...*

Coffee, frozen pizza and even rice can be grilled on a BBQ grill.

Hot pockets taste pretty good deep fried on the outdoor cooker!

My car gets 23.21675 miles per gallon, EXACTLY (you can ask
the people in line who helped me push it).

He who has the biggest generator wins.

A new method of non-lethal torture - showers without hot water.

There are a lot more stars in the sky than most people thought.

TV is an addiction and the withdrawal symptoms are painful.

Eating junk food does provide a short term source of comfort as you work through the pains of TV withdrawal but you will regret it later.

A 7 lb bag of ice will chill 6-12 oz Budweiser's to a drinkable temperature in 11 minutes, and still keep a 14 lb. turkey frozen for 8 more hours.

There are a lot of dang trees around here.

Flood plan drawings on some mortgage documents were seriously wrong..

People will get into a line that has already formed without having any idea what the line is for.

Cell phones work when land lines are down, but only as long as the battery remains charged.

Hampers were not made to contain such a volume.

If my nearest corner store sold only ice, chainsaws, gas and generators -
they'd be rich.

Tree service companies are underappreciated.

I learned what happens when you make fun of another states' blackout.

MATH 101: 30 days in month, minus 6 days without power equals 30% higher electric bill ?????

Drywall is a compound word, take away the 'dry' part and it's worthless.

I can walk a lot farther than I thought.

You can never have too many gas cans!

If you fill the bathtubs with water, the water will not go off.

Seven (7) dogs that do not normally live together still do not get along during a hurricane...they have no comprehension of sharing.

Neighbors are much more sociable when they are sharing a generator.

Two-year-old canned beets taste better than you'd think.

Just because it is dark and you are in the privacy of your bedroom doesn't mean we can't hear what you are doing in there because our windows are open too.

What looks acceptable by candlelight in your bathroom will scare you when you look at yourself in the mirror at the office.

Peanut butter and jelly is a perfectly acceptable meal for breakfast, lunch and dinner in the same day.

Don't shun those who use Tylenol PM or Advil PM to get through 11-hour nights.

That neighbor who knows how to use a chainsaw is your new best friend.

Ice is a form of currency.

Coming home from work with a pizza and a charged-up laptop so the kids can watch a DVD makes you a hero.

Hair can dry without a blow dryer, but it may not look the way you planned.

Baseball caps go with any post-hurricane ensemble.

You can't train yourself not to flip on light switches when entering a room.

It's easier to ignore a dirty floor when you can't see it.

A new opening phrase when seeing someone: 'Got lights yet?'

P.S. I have put a new sign in my front yard:

Attention Center Point Energy:

Information is Ammunition

lol love the last one about the Free Beer. I remember back when arkansas had a really bad ice strom that knocked out power for over a month in some places. We were without for about little over three weeks. Thank god for gas heaters and water heater.
