lost electricity

all three phases of power come to a pole located on the edge of our farm. The top phase is used to feed everyone on our loop road, except my house which is on the lower wire. one year we had ice pretty bad. the whole road had no electricity for a week. we never lost ours. at about day 3, my yank neighbors sent a repensitative over to my house to find out why we had electricity and noone else did...they were upset big time. when you live in the country i think it is your responsibility to be prepaired for short term loss of: electrical power, heating, ability to use roads (iceing etc.) now with that said, it amazes me how those of you that live in the more norther areas carry out your lives in the long and harsh winter months. if we (virginia) had a foot of snow, we would probably have to declare a state emergency, we would not be prepared to deal with it. What do those of you further north do to get ready? Thanks for allowing me to ramble
