Winter Preparedness Tip

Due to the snowstorms in our area I have been thinking a bit lately about emergency heating.  As our apartment has forced air heat, if the power goes out the blower on the furnace won't work.  I picked up a heater buddy and adapter for a bigger tank last year along with a coupler for refilling small tanks from big ones.  I figure if the power goes out my family can gather in one room and insulate the window and door.  Well, a thought occurred to me.  If I use mylar emergency blankets on the window it should reflect the heat in.  What do you think?
