Of course...

...seeing as how we're supposed to be getting hit by a major storm within the next eight hours, we probably won't have a whole lot of electricity later on this afternoon.

I would advise everyone to save as much as you can, put it in a clean bottle or bowl, and put it in a cool dark place in case you need it.

{And if your (danged homphones) kids go to Trussville schools--I have just been informed [9:15 am] that they're being sent home at 1:00 this afternoon.}

Thank you--I have a feeling there are more lurking out there...

You have to be careful when storing electricity in jars. A big Leyden jar, fully charged, can knock you on your backside rather quickly, or even induce cardiac non-functionality.

Leyden? Do they make pickles, or mayonnaise?

Well, either way, it's probably best not to fill them all the way up to the top. Maybe leave an inch or two before the rim if you have a big jar, just to keep any from sloshing out on you.
