Wow, looks nasty, glad you didn't lose anyone due to the storm.

i'm thinking we need to get a kerosene heater for our herp room just in case. we haven't had any power problems here but we haven't lived here long.

we haven't had a bad storm and lost power here in NY since 1996. i lost my three parakeets and all of our fish. i didn't have any herps. Beethoven my guinea pig did makeit through. and then died of old age a week after everything was restored . irony. a family friend who lives in North Carolina sent us a video of their ice storm where we watched 7 trees fall in his back yard.

Lisa - we had our kerosene heater handy too... the biggest thing that concerns me about those things is the fumes that they produce... ya have to really vent the room that they are in... it was going to be our backup plan believe me... luckily we were restored in just a couple days...

T&U - Sorry to hear about your losses.. I guess it's just a risk we have to take - most of the folks on this board live in a northern climate where the temps get far lower than here for the most part... ya just have to have one of those 'what if' plans... especially when we all rely so much on electricity for heat. Where does your family friend live in NC?

Jon

The venting is something i worry about too... still trying to figure that one out, we're in an apt building so putting a hole in the wall isn't really feasable.

Sorry to hear about your place but at least everything living made it thourgh it. I live in arizona so I don't have that problem but I always worry about the ac going out in the summer when it is 115 degrees out. I think the reptiles would make it but we have things like chincilla's, sugar gliders, and a gambian pouch rat that couldn't take the heat.
