Light a candle
Find a flashlight
Read by candlelight, firelight or flashlight
Drink a drink with no ice
Strip down to bare essentials
Sit on the patio, daydream about having AC and ice
Listen to the Sound of Silence
Make a list of all the things you will do when you have power

Crawl out to your car and put the lights on or drive around.

Eat up the ice cream in the freezer.


Sit and stare at electrical items and lights, waiting for the return of power.

Count the minutes.

Stare at each other like you can't imagine what happened and stare at the tv, ceiling fan, laptop, dishwasher, etc. until the power returns.

Anyone having rolling black outs?

Burn your obomo care health policy. That is about the only benefit you will get out of it, besides higher monthly payments.

Better to have some heat , even if temporarily, than none at all.
