Unexpected blizzard? It's Alaska; we're disappointed when we don't have blizzards.
Grocery stores short of food? Dig into the stores you set aside for such an event.
Cell phones go off-line? Oh, wait.
"MANY CELL PHONE WITH ATT IN KETCHIKAN AK ARE NOT WORKING AND HAVE NO CELL SERVICE PLEASE FIX THIS"
"I would think a responsible company that knows text is still working would at least text an update to its customers as to when they might expect to regain service."
"just a reminder folks that in a dark emergency, there may be no cell service. a land line will probably still work, and txtg may still work. are you prepared? ooops, not me either."
Really, people? I know everyone's had a cell phone surgically grafted onto their hand, these days, but ... geez. Get over it. It's only a telephone.
Want to talk to your neighbor? (Yes, some of us still do that.) Then GO OUTSIDE and see them.
Come on, folks: we're supposed to be better than that.
