A glimpse into our crazy life

Things we learned from the power outage October 3, 2008

1. Invest in a battery-powered camping lantern. We’re gotten more use out of that thing from power outages than from camping and it puts out a lot more watts than candles.

2. Be sure to remember where you put your camping lantern and flashlights if you move.

3. Ice becomes a hot commodity if the power outage lasts over 12 hours so memorize the location of all area stores that sell ice.

4. Fear of a gas shortage can cause gas prices to spike rapidly so fill your tanks the day before any power outages. You may need the assistance of a psychic for that one.

5. Adopt an animal. They can provide hours of electricity-free entertainment!
