When Darkness Hits, Are You Ready for the Storm?

When Darkness Hits, Are You Ready for the Storm?

I'll admit it...I'm a tad bit obsessed with the recent storms walloping the Bay Area. Having grown up in Arizona, I've missed the thunderstorms. But then I remembered that thunderstorms often come with power outages and power outages require some other light source. With tea lights hidden in a closet, no matches in sight and a flash light with dead batteries, I realized I was ill prepared. Are you?

Do you store longer burning candles in case of a black out? Do you keep extra batteries handy for your flashlight? Do you prefer one over the other? Or like me, did you not really even think about it until now?
