The power went off last night. I think the entire city was without power for two hours. Ohhhhh, it was DARK. We finally found our kerosene lamps and three candles. The lamps put out a lot more light than candles. We grabbed the tops of our outdoor solar lamps and stuck them in glasses. I've done this before and it is great. You can't go to sleep with candles and lamps burning but these things are totally safe. Of course we had both TV sets on when the power went off. I fell into a deep sleep and almost jumped straight up when they came back on!
How did/do people live without electricity?
