Power outages can be inconvenient, costly and even dangerous. Being prepared is especially important when wicked seasonal weather - such as hurricanes, thunderstorms, tornadoes and heat waves - are more likely to take a toll.
No matter where you live, make sure your home and family are ready.

Outage Tolls
Nearly 70 percent of U.S. adults who experience a power outage are saddled with costs, according to a recent Harris Interactive survey sponsored by Briggs & Stratton Corp. Expenses include supply purchases, such as flashlights, portable generators and candles, property damage and replacing spoiled food. Additionally, your home may be uninhabitable in extreme weather.

Over the last half dozen years, Mike Foreman has spent time, on and off, in the Ankneys' historic Haskins Road home, remodeling bathrooms and the kitchen.
Little did he know that he'd spend this entire winter working in the home.
Foreman was first on the list of calls after a car went airborne the night of Jan. 15, striking Mark and Pat Ankney's home.
"She called me in the morning and she told me a car was in her porch," Foreman said.
The porch - one the Ankneys' favorite features in their home - was the focal point of the damage and the recovery, he said. 
"The front porch really saved it (the home) and took a big beating. It was damaged. I didn't see any repairs. I saw a brand new porch as soon as I walked on the job."
