Being the creative problem solver that I am I had an idea. One night in total darkness I spotted a lit doorbell button on the other side of the street. Obviously they have power restored. I have 2 100’ extentions that I ran across the street to an outside outlet (which I knew was required by code)under the empty house (which most are this time of year.)
This powers my refrig and a radio for info. At times I unplug or sacrifice if you will the refrig to power the PC. Good observation though.
