No electricity but still have natural gas

I used my stove range to heat my house. Thank goodness we never got an electric stove. If you still have natural gas just turn on your stove and it will heat up your home. If you have a gas operated oven, use that too! Unfortunately my oven is not gas operated and so when the electricity went out, it also went.

I left my stove on all day and got the temp up to 70 degrees! I did that everyday this week : ) I'm nice and toasty. I can live w/o the generator since I have hot water and stove for cooking. But my food won't too much longer-- though I've finished most of it anyway. So very little will be thrown out.
