Sorry about the vacation.
I'll be near Wilmington next month, provided the oceanfront house we've rented is still there.
When we had a windstorm a few years ago that knocked out power for 4 or 5 days, it wasn't bad. The water worked, the gas worked, just now electricity. So I could cook on the stove and take hot showers, but we had no heat. Left to myself and after cleaning up the mess, I brewed.
If things had been tougher though, we still would have been fine with the beer/water/food/fuel stocks we keep on hand.
