Good thing I picked up booze on the way home.

Stay safe out there

Looks like the whole island is without power. That could be a good thing and speed up response time

8” of snow

Still no power

Power company robocalls every hour or so saying it’s taking longer than expected but provides no timeframe

Fireplace can’t keep up with the weather and the temp is dropping - down to 57f indoors

If my power remains out and there is a low of 15f what should I do to protect my pipes

Drip the faucet at the opposite side of the source?

Drip might not be enough. Any sink on an outside wall I would run a small stream (1/8”+) until you get the house warmed back up.

If you put vodka in your pipes, they won't freeze.

And you can pour shots from the faucet.
