I live in a hurricane prone area. You have to have enough food that does not need refrigeration such as canned foods, or buy the food as you need it. Cook on a camp stove or BBQ grill. Learn to like a cold shower. Go to bed when the sun goes down, and enjoy not having a television filling your brain with senseless fluff. It can be done. I've done it. It's like a camping trip at home. But when the power comes back on it's HOT shower time!
Preparedness Is Key!
If possible, keep frozen gallon jugs of water in your freezer. When the power is determined to be off for a period of time perhaps over 4 hours, place the frozen jugs in a cooler to keep items cool. The jugs are basically 8 lb blocks of ice with handles. Once melted, you can drink the water.
River, stream, or pool water can be used for flushing. Scoop a bucket full and pour directly into the toilet bowl when flushing is required. Don't waste time trying to pour it into the toilet tank, you'll only spill it all over the place.
People still can and do survive without electricity.
it's an insect it can survive for three monyhs without food
Probably not in our day and age.
it survives for a month or less
about a month or a week
I would be able to survive for several years. I was once the warden on a caravan site on the Lancashire coast (UK) for five years - there was not electricity to the site! That would have meant being unable to answer this question! As I now live in a Lancashire village, I have electricity (and electricity bills!).
Roaches can only live without water for 1 month. They can survive without food for 3 months.
A cricket can survive extended periods without ingesting food--up to a month, depending on the climate.
Yes, of course. It's good for them, just like it's good for us.
Yes. People didn't always have electricity, and they survived. It would be hard to get used to, but yes. Yes. There is a place called Greenville and they recycle everything. Their houses are energy efficient. That means they use no energy. You can survive without energy.
The amount of electricity that can go through the body without killing them is quite varied. In some circumstances an individual can be struck by lightning and survive, and in others an individual can touch an electrical wire and die. Electricity has unforseen effects on the body.
Cant imagine without electricity. Without electricity our daily routine will disorder
