Think it's no big deal? Into the 3rd day here in Maine, and nearly 100,000 residences remain without power. Here's what happens if you can't heat your house.
That means no heat. No heat for the house also means no way to keep the pipes in the house from freezing and bursting. We're not just talking about the water pipes in the kitchen and bathroom here -- houses here are usually heated by pumping heated water through pipes that run through all the rooms to baseboard registers. Those pipes also freeze and burst if you don't keep the house warm.
So far, with temperatures well below freezing outside, many people in Maine and New Hampshire are dealing with their third day of fighting to keep this from happening.

No problems with the pipes, and no food spoilage. Here in NH, I think the main

were better prepared. From my point of view, they did a great job.
