Here in California the new reality is that multi-day outages are now 
common. The first few planned outages were 3-4 days, so that would be on 
the edge, especially if it's for gabby granny on the phone for 
hours.This all depends on the weather, and for snow related outages they 
can go on for days. We have a generator because of this, but everybody 
getting a generator in the middle of the Berkeley Hills would be 
something of its own horror show, but it will probably come down to that.
