If its cold enough a blanket wouldn't really give you enough heat. It snowed where I live last night and its pretty cold here. If the power went out and we had no heat we wouldnt just be able to rely on a blanket. So maybe consider what kind of situation op is in.

@33 Stay at my house without power and try to get the water running. I said in SOME cases no power = no water. Maybe not where you live but maybe it is this way where OP lives.

2 years ago, there was a blizzard where I live and I lost power for a week. We had no heat, or water because we live out in the middle of nowhere and have well water. It was cold, and uncomfortable, but we survived.

I too live in a rural area where if we lose power, we also lose water because we're on a well. However, i can figure out how to survive without running water. The last thing I want to waste my hard earned money on is a motel room because I'm too big of a pussy to sleep in the dark and not have a glass of water on my night stand for a few hours.

I have slept in -12 centigrade and a blanket was sufficient. There's always the option of TWO blankets. And I should point out that OP lives in an APARTMENT, so he does not use well water. Unless Michigan (OP's state) has apartment blocks that use well water? I don't know, I've never been to Michigan.

OP is in Michigan. It is NOT so cold here right now that a few blankets and warm clothes would be insufficient. Perhaps OP should invest in some candles or a lantern and a battery-operated heater. I can understand taking off if you KNOW it will be a while for the power to be back on. But if you can't last a whole whopping night without power, that's sad.

By any time soon, do you mean a few days? I can't see running to a hotel right away. Unless if there is a need. I spent 11 days without power during a hurricane and managed to keep a home based web business up and running off of cell phones and pocket pcs. Smart phones would have made it easier but it was before their time.

I know what you mean... Seriously? Why go straight to a hotel? I had to spend 8 days without power when we had a really nasty hurricane pass through. It's not really that hard...

Playing "Clue" by the light of a Coleman lantern with my family was so fun. Stupid power companies are becoming too dependable. We haven't had an outage over a few minutes in years.
