Doh! Wish I’d thought of this sooner…

So the whole time we had no power and were exiled to a place with power and internet access and hot running water, we kept wondering… Is the power back on at our house yet?

That question could only be answered this time by a drive out to our house to see in person.

So now I am setting up Dynanic DNS; and a tiny home server to report the temperature in the house and outside of it. I’ll put this server outside our firewall (or in a DMZ zone if I can get the router to do that) and plug it directly into the wall without the benefit of battery backed up UPS.

Next time, I can simply check that server to see if power is on and if so, how warm the house is. I should have thought of this sooner.
