We are in pretty good shape for emergency lighting. We lost our power on New Year’s Day, a few times. When I woke up at 5am it was really dark, really dark. I snuck downstairs to turn on a few battery candles so the boys spending the night didn’t trip over anything. They were great, just the right amount of light – enough to see, but not too much to sleep. It got me thinking about how ready we are / aren’t in case of these short term emergencies……..let’s start with light.
We also have 4 antique kerosene lamps and a bunch of regular candles in addition to a lot of supplies for making more candles. In addition, all of the boys have head lamps from camping.
