Check Your Honeywell Settings!
Don't wait until severe weather hits to check your settings. You may want to change your time time settings from Midnight to Midnight and have more than one way of being contacted...i.e. phone call/text message and or email.  This way if the phone lines are down/circuits are busy etc., you are covered.
