We have a land line out of security - the power goes out here frequently because of storms (and our City Dept. of Electricity is SLOW). A lot of times our cells won't work during bad storms. So we keep a corded phone in our computer room as well as a cordless for everyday use. We had gone without a long time ago, but all it took was one baddie storm and I was a complete nervous wreck. We listen to NOAA, but our parents also call if they see anything on the radar that looks bad (my mom has done storm tracking courses) because they have TV and we don't.
