Power Outage, what should I do?

I just got a warning that an ice storm may come in the next few days, I have a juvenile beardie and we don’t have a generator. Any tips on what I should do if the power goes out?

How long will the power be out for? You can buy one of those battery back up towers. They can run a small heat bulb or heat mat for quite awhile.

In your situation = icestorm likely power outage for several days

solar panel + battery charger + maybe a 80Wh deep discharge gel battery + 12VDC to AC inverter + heatpad 7W ( leave it on 24/7 ).

I keep a box of handwarmers as a temporary heat source until I can get my dragon to someplace that has power... if getting one of those battery packs isn't an option.
