Please give tips regarding insulin storage during extended power outages. I do not have a generator but keep ice on hand for short outages.

Background Info Hide
I am type 2, using Lantus and Humalog. I know after reaching room temp that it must be used in 30 days. Due to insurance requirements though, I purchase 90 days of insulin at a time. Twice I have been without electricity for 5 days and took the insulin to a relatives' home. However, this may not always be possible. In the instance of a larger electrical issue, I would like to have a plan in place.
