Winters are, simply put, tough in the Northeast. Snowstorms, ice storms, and dangerously low temperatures—all of which can easily cause a power outage—are all too common.

 

Just a few months ago, an early-winter snow storm caused more than 400,000 power outages in the Northeast and New England. Then, just last week, a polar vortex swept through the Midwest and Northeast, threatening to break low temperature records originally set in the 1800s. Over 36,000 Illinois residents were left without power, as well as 13,000 in Indiana and 8,000 in Wisconsin.

 

With February here, we’re officially in the dead of winter—and, arguably, in the Northeast’s worst winter month.
