solar lights. If you are going to be without electricity for any number of days I strongly recommend the solar lights like you see out in people's yards illuminating the driveway or walk. Stick them in the yard during the day and bring them in at night. Not bright light, but then neither is a candle. No fire, no smoke, no batteries, no fuss. All good. The stores are out of flashlights, lanterns, candles and batteries. Guess what they got lots of? I got light.
