Whether this storm or last week's severe weather, power outages happen.

Kohler Generators made a checklist of things you may need to do in case that happens.

You know you're going to need light so fill a gallon milk jug with water. Strap your head lamp to the jug facing inward to create a lantern.

Of course your phone's going to come in handy so put it on airplane mode to save battery life!

If your family is in and out of the fridge too much - use your clothes washer as a make shift cooler. Fill it with ice to keep food cold, the water just drains out.

And if it's a winter storm, get out the bubble wrap. Use it to cover your windows and doors to keep heat inside.
