What do people with reptiles do during winter power outages?

What do people with pet reptiles do during power outages in areas with severe winters? How do they keep their snakes or lizards warm, or do the pets go into hibernation?

    Outages are rare in most parts of the country. Further, a natural gas based heater can keep the room warm. Outages usually only affect electricity supply. Many people also keep their reptile cages on a shelf above a natural gas room heater. People who breed snakes put their snakes in hibernation anyway. So, unless temperatures plunge below freezing, a power outage won't matter. In fact, some parts of the country are so warm during the winter that some people put their snakes in refrigerators.
