It wasn't until afterwards, when I heard about the 5-hour long power outages in some areas, when it dawned on me how fortunate we were to escape the effects of the snowstorm. Heavens, what if our power were to go out ? Our place is fully-electric and that means that our heat is electric-powered as well.
And suddenly, as I am typing these, some questions come to mind:
- How are we to keep the baby warm ?
- How am I supposed to pump breastmilk when I get engorged (an painful) ? I do have a manual breastpump but I've never used it and haven't not even assembled it before.
- How do we heat cold breastmilk (water heater is electric as well) ?
