    I live in Indiana and the winters can get pretty bad. I was wondering what type of things I should get in case the power goes out? Should I try to keep them warm or just transport them to a place that has power? Any ideas?

    I guess the question would be how long does the power go out where you live and how your house is heated. If the power goes out for short periods of time. Say 30 minutes I would say not to worry about it. If it goes out for days, that is a different story.

    Get a few warm blankets and just huddle them around the tank. Wrap it completely and be sure to have lots of layers! If the tank has proper insulation it will keep warm for hours, maybe a day.

    I was thinking no more than eight hours. Hopefully we will not lose power this winter but you never know! Thanks for the idea's!
