Bright, carefree and inexpensive lighting for every room of the house is a modern luxury, made possible by electricity since the early 1900s. Very few of us have any idea what it might be like to live without electric light. We think, “Oh, we’ll be fine with a few candles and an old-fashioned kerosene lamp.”
To get an accurate picture of what it means to live without electric lights, turn off the fuse switches in your house some dark winter evening. Doing this in advance, when there is no emergency will give you a far better picture of what you need to do to prepare than listening to our advice on the subject.
We carry a variety of candles and flashlights. It is a good idea to have adequate, safe, non-electric light for every room in your house. This is not only highly recommended but easily achievable. You should also include long-burning candles and flashlights.
