Cooking in the NE during power outages

I got lucky, my power was out for a mere six hours on sat. I have a gas stove so I fried up some leftover shephard's pie from Smoke Daddy for lunch. Fried pie is always good when the temperature inside your house is dropping fast. For dinner I just happened to have a big pot of homemade chicken veggie soup in the fridge so we just heated that. /hugs gas stove. I kept warm by heating up water for tea in a pot on the stove. CP was out from sat thru monday am and is thankful for his wood burning stove:
Some folks were able to get out on sunday, the R and S Keystone was hit hard sunday morning by cold people desperate for a hot cup of coffee. I went there for an early dinner and a lot of the patrons were commenting that they still had no electricity. So how did my fellow philly area hounds fare with their fare? It was surreal driving to the 24 hour Walmart in hilltown late saturday night to buy an emergency fish tank heater and seeing four traffic lights out on 309. Hope everyone stayed safe, warm and well-fed.
