    You really can’t get your cars out of the garage? You can’t pull the emergency handle on the door opener, lift it up, and then drive out?

    It’s simply amazing how unprepared people are for a little storm.

    Yeah it kills me how people don’t know how to disable the electric garage door opener. Even I know, and that’s saying a lot (kind of – I’m not an idiot)
