What I Discovered During A Power Outage

This Sparked Me!

The power is OUT! Flashlights dim? Candles too dangerous with kids/pets? No batteries left in the store? Try the little individual solar lights designed for outdoors. I bought some at a discount store for cheap. I keep a few on my sunny fencepost...they stay clean and within easy reach to bring inside for great indoor lighting in an emergency or any day to save electricity and use the sun's free energy.
BONUS: Our old dog needs a night light, this kept us safe & worry free. emoticon

    we just purchased some flashlights that are powered by cranking a handle. Just right for us in the north where there often isn"t any sun!

    lol! it's so true! i stay in kinston nc, and we were without power for 5 days!!! my kids actually went outside and got the solar lights to eat dinner at the table. I will not worry about power outages so much now because that is a sure source of light!!! emoticon
