Hurricanes are welcomed by few people other than meteorologists & children who want an excuse to miss school, but they pose a special problem for me. How come?

Several possibilities:
Unlike our friends who live in Flolrida and other Gulf states, you're just not used to them.
or
There has never been a Hurricane Nimue? or a Hurricane Vivien?
or
There has been a hurricane "named for you" but not a major one?
or
Some other reason (as I suspect?)

Do other major disasters/upheavals/news events that (may) strike your area pose the special problem?

E.g.: Earthquake; Drought; Tornado; Rail strike; Political protests...

Does it have to do with your livelihood? That of someone in your family?

If you did not live in a hurricane zone (do you?), would hurricanes still pose this problem for you?

Is it relevant that hurricanes only come by your area occasionally?

If your power is out, you can't post to this forum (unless of course you have a laptop with lots of battery time.) Is this relevant?

Is electrical power meant? or some other utility, e.g. water? trash collection? telephone? other?

Do they pose the same problem for anyone other than you? Of so: people in the same area? In the same kind of dwelling? With the same line of work? Is a hobby relevant? Pet(s)? Plant(s)? Some electrically powered device? Backup electrical power relevant?

You can't reach the top floor using the elevator unless it's raining and you have an umbrella with you? Wait, that's a different puzzle, never mind...

Is/are elevator(s) relevant? Electric vehicles? Escalators?

so hurricanes present a problem to you in a way tht relates to some sort of electrical device?

is that electrical device a fridge? a freezer? a device connected with food? food storage? food preparation?

is the problem that you cannot access food? a particular foodstuff? that you cannot buy it? that you cannot store it? that you cannot prepare it? that you cannot eat it?

would you go hungry? miss a treat?

As my own refrigerator has just chosen to die, I should be able to figure this out. But I'm not in danger of going hungry - this week - so I'm a bit alarmed for you, Nimue!

My immediate choice was to buy both canned food and frozen dinners. Is either of these choices possible in the situation you describe?

so when a hurricane comes you have a problem because your fridge/freezer might stop working? because of power outages? and you won't be able to store the food you want?

does this relate to your habit of having special cake/pudding indulgence days? does it mean you miss these? or these are spoilt?

HINT & RECAP Add the following to the puzzle description: The solution involves food & refrigeration & probably would not apply to many people.

Trying to use process of elimination: This does not involve special food indulgences, such as ice cream (Yummm), or medications. Therefore, just ordinary food? But not ordinary food, because it "probably would not apply to many people." So what's left?

Is there another food fetish/prejudice of yours (besides sweets) that we don't know about as yet? Is this relevant?

Shall we call it a "quirk" then?
Is seasoning involved? You can't eat or don't like salt, so keep food prepared without salt in the freezer, & when it goes out, have to buy the salty stuff from the local grocery?
Or something analagous to that?

Is there something you like to eat, but only when it's frozen?
For example, I like frozen blueberries & often have them for a late-night snack, but I'm not so fond of them thawed.

Is the type of diet (diabetic, weight loss, etc.) relevant? Is it one of those diets where you have all your prepared meals for a week (or whatever length of time) sent to your doorstep?

Or is more just a dietary restriction (no eggs, limited carbs, etc.)?

Do you choose to eat only organic foods? Only foods produced in a particular location?

Is there a relevant health issue?

RECAP: Add the following to the puzzle statement. Power failure undermining refrigeration is relevant, as is the fact that I'm on a (maintenance) diet.

I'm somewhat stuck... lemme think.

This applies to a wide range of foods, correct? (since "dairy? meat? fish? vegetables? fruit? processed food? sauces? pizza?" all got a "yes")

Is the size of your fridge or freezer relevant?
Do you have a special "system" that you use to store food (alphabetical or whatever, who knows...)?
Do you follow an eating schedule?
Do you have anything relevant in your fridge or freezer that is not food?

Is the problem that you won't be able to be on your diet?
Is throwing out food relevant?
Bad smells?
Is the light in the refrigerator relevant?

Or is it the house lights? You can't see what you are eating? So can't stay on your diet? (I'm sure the answer will be something perfectly simple, and we are dancing all around it!)

Aside from the fridge/freezer being off, does the power failure affect you in any other relevant way? for example, water pump is electric, so you can't get water to take a bath, wash dishes, etc? (I've been in that position, though not because of a hurricaine.}

Do you store food in your freezer that other people normally would not store in a freezer?

Relevant how often you eat? More often than other people? Less often? Relevant what kinds of food you combine?

We had a very delicious birthday cake today, here's a photo of it. I bet you would have liked it, Nimue, it's pretty much all chocolate with a little bit of dough somewhere in between.

Do you have the problem that if you have a lot of food in the house you will eat it all at once? So you would prefer to buy food as and when you need it? Do you have to buy more canned or non-refrigerated food, which you then eat straight away?

Is it to do with needing to use up all the food in your fridge/freezer when the power fails? Do you have more food in the fridge/freezer than the average person?

Is (lack of) willpower combined with (lack of) patience?

******* SPOILER ************
I have so little willpower that there's almost no food I can keep in the house without eating it right away, & most of the food that is unappetizing enough to be safe needs to be refrigerated, such as plain, fat-free yogurt; fish; vegetables; & other such non-delectables. So a power outage is an even bigger problem for me than it is for most people. Will my new puzzle be a big problem for you? Check it out & see!
