Sorry to hear of your tribulations, Ron. We were without power for 12
days during the big ice storm a few winters ago.
I thought it was little funny, though, from one standpoint: I was
expecting ours to go out, too, this time around. But it didn't.
Still, as I prepared for it, I eyed that Zass manual grinder pretty
hard. It sure made me feel good to know I wasn't going to have
trouble grinding coffee. And knowing the alcohol or butane burners
would operate the vac pots, even if a little slower than when I'm able
to pre-heat with the electric kettle, didn't hurt a bit, either...
Still, in your case, as you say, it seems you owe your wife a great
deal after her performance today. ;>)
