|As family caregivers, our concerns are amplified when the power goes out.
Time is not our friend during a power outage.
In addition to the refrigerator, heating and cooling systems, entertainment and communication devices, we need
battery power for nebulizers, oxygen delivery and other concerns. When an ice storm hits, staying in our home
may be the safest choice, if we have back-up power.
Portable power packs need to be charged.
Smaller, portable solar chargers, as well as Wind generators are available.
Remember... "land" phone lines usually continue to work when electricity fails.
Be sure to have a phone that does not require electricity.
Relying on cordless phones alone will leave you speechless. Have at least one "traditional"
touch tone phone with a phone cord plugged in to a phone jack for such an emergency.
Remember, a laptop can use a phone cord for dial up internet service, if you have the number already stored in
your memory, and enough battery power to compute.

Mowing your lawn is
becoming increasingly difficult,

Sit down and figure out annual cost for grass mowing and compare to this quiet, gas-free, hassle-free alternative.
No oil changes or lugging a
gassy mower to the repair shop.
Keep cool on blistering days.
Stop the nagging.
Keep "caught up" with the help of automation.
Let criticism for THIS investment be colored by the one who consistantly pushes the mower!
Reserve more time for trimming and beautification.
