    Thanks everyone for the advice. Thankfully it was only a 3 hour power outage. My dad had a battery back up supply or whatever it's called and my mom found an old bubbler in the garage so we hooked that up to the battery backup. And thankfully everyone survived and is doing ok

    That's great news:)

    3 hours is not bad at all. Keeping temp in the house a decent level should not have been an issue is southern cali.
