I am in better shape than some whom are still in tents. I use a cooler for food and that is ok. I like the propane heater tho it looks a little scary LOL the price is very good.

The beautiful live oaks are gone and going to be wasted. I do have a tent outside setup to hold water bottles and MRE boxes. As I said my situation is better than some and I have been researching ways to turn my place into an off grid homestead for a long time. The storm has forced me to start whether I wanted to or not LOL. I do appreciate the concern thank you.

You can wrap yourselves in those or hang them up and duct tape them together to make a warm space. They do a great job of reflecting your lost heat back to your body.
If you have the space outside and it's if it's not windy you might also consider a small camp fire outside to sit by bundled up with the barn to your back. Maybe it would also be fun for the teen. But whatever you do, please be VERY safe with fire.

Is it possible that you could run something like a clothesline with rope so you could hang blankets or tarps to make the space smaller?
The first person to drink cow's milk. That started off as a dare from this tiny ad:
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 carshttp://woodheat.net
