We always have a land line, push-button phone plugged in and keep a yellow pages directory around. During electrical outages, we usually still have phone service. During a bad storm last summer, electricity was off 3 days and cell phone batteries were low, but we still had the old land line. Also, still keep stationery, greeting cards, envelopes and stamps.
