Snowed in without power, heat

Last year, we got snowed in without power.  We cannot drive out as the streets have not been cleared and have over 5 feet of snow.  Then the power went out and took the furnace with it.  That night, I turned on all 4 burners of the gas stove and boiled water to keep the place warm.

This year, I bought this converter that I plug in the car cigarette lighter outlet.  From there, I can plug a long extension wire that will power a space heater.  This model is Tailgate Inverter Max.  It is available in stores that sell car parts and accessories.
