Not sure where I saw this: "We are all Puerto Ricans now, but at least they have paper towels"

Hahaha! We always had paper towels. What we didn't have was running water but that lasted for three days only. But we went without electricity for four dastardly months (my neighborhood).

What was that even like?

I'd love to know what a "normal day" is without electricity.

I understand that some areas of the UK have seen people descend on supermarkets staggering away with dried goods, toilet paper and hand sanitisers. 

Since the 60s, I've always had good stocks of pasta, rice, flour, tins etc, sufficient to help me survive the early stages of a nuclear war that seemed much more likely in those far off days then it does now.

I got used to it after a whole month. Irma came first and after ten days, most of the island had power except for our area. When Maria route to PR was predicted, I knew we're going to be in the dark for months (lasting four months). The idiots at the Power Authority were not going to fix what Irma did because they rationalized "why fix it if it's going to break down again?"

The only good thing was at night, watching the sky and its bright Stars.

How did you cook?  How did you keep food fresh?

What did you use for light?

Canned Heat/Cooking fuel.

Ice chest/cooler, mostly milk, no meat. Most of my meals were canned foods (e.g. Vienna sausages). I lost a lot of weight.

Candles (big ones), battery-run lanterns and flashlights.

Well, it's raining outside right now, here. Fortunately, we still have some paper towels left if we need them.
