This is the reason that everyone is advising you to go to a shelter or to seek alternative accommodations  if you do not have power tonight. It is supposed to be bitterly cold. Don't be too proud or stubborn that you believe you can shelter in place if your house is in the 50's or colder. It is dangerous!
