At Greensward Hamlet in Buxton Maine, we were out of power until this
morning. Being a brand new building, we are happy with the results
of this big test! We had a lot of rain which accummulated on the
landscape but quickly drained away. Inside, we were comfortable and
didn't run out of water until this morning just before the power came
back on. (We have a well with a large holding tank and large hotwater
tank, which kept the water hot for more than two days.) Our Energy
Star refrigerators kept the food cool and the freezer kept the food
frozen. So we know we can survive for two days!
