Fun fact: Electricity isn’t guaranteed.

About a week ago now my neighborhood experienced a blackout after a transformer failed during a mild thunderstorm. That’s right, MILD. The weather doesn’t have to be obnoxious for the power to go out, folks.

Now for most of us blackouts aren’t a big deal but think about what a blackout does to people who are legally blind. In my house hold this is a huge concern.

Candle light is not very bright. If you’ve ever tried to make your way through your house with just a candle you’ve undoubtedly run into furniture. Now imagine that you were legally blind- the shadow factor increases exponentially.

To combat this issue in my home I’ve made it a point to have gallon water jugs on hand, clear duct tape and LED light tap on/off battery powered lights. When the lights go out, we have nice milk jug lamps.



Just place the flash inward, against the gallon jug filled with water and duct tape it on. The water helps amplify the light. Works awesomely for my family and I believe it can help yours too!

IMG_20130701_004128 (1)Beyond blackouts these lamps can come in handy if you want to save money on your electrical bill. Of course it’s not as bright as a regular light bulb, but it gets the job done.

This is also makes a great and safe lights to have in your tent when camping.

Make sure that you have the appropriate batteries for these flashlights. I believe mine takes triple A but double check and watch the dates.

I hope you find this of use. And remember, as my mother always says, better to have it and not need than to not have it and need it.
