Solar Lights For Emergency Lights

If you use those little solar lights outside, they can come in handy during a power outage at night. Bring them inside and you have light, then take them back out in the morning to recharge. They may be safer than candles and won't provide heat in the summer.

We string up our solar Christmas lights prior to Earth Hour and sit under them while having a game of Scrabble during the hour plus. (We actually play 2 out of 3 games which is longer than Earth Hour). It's become a tradition now.

Hello, tobeamiss again.

We recently had a power outage and I used your suggestion. In a decorated can filled with white sand, I placed the outdoor battery operated solar light. My husband was really impressed. ;) When the power went out we were already in bed for the night but downstairs and outside I went LOL to get the light and set it up. No fear of burning the house down or filling the bedroom with carbon from the candle! Thank you again for this great idea!
