Lighting without electricity

Remember, our ward will be practicing "No Electric Lights and No Powered Entertainment for One Night" next week (preferably Sunday night March 11).

After a hurricane or ice storm, you may be faced with 1-9 nights without light, so you need to figure out ways to create light for your family. How are you going to do that?

Candles. One candle will burn for about 35 hours, but it makes a very dim light, and is unsafe around little children.

Lamp and lamp oil. A lamp with lamp oil can be burned in the house, but again, the flame is dangerous around little children.   Be sure you have lamp oil and a wick.

Flashlights are safe and bright, but the batteries will only power them for so long.  Be sure you have plenty of batteries.
