Already this spring, we’ve had some pretty big storms come over. Which got me thinking the other day… if storm season continues in this manner, we’re headed for a summer with a lot of blackouts. And in a technology obsessed world, blackouts mean going old-school on activities.
Things To Do During A Blackout
*Knock on wood* it has actually been a while since we’ve had a storm related black out – I can’t even remember having one last storm season at all. I put the call out on social media for some tips:
- Board games – always a great stand by. Some of them are more exciting in the dark too. Or maybe you can’t see how bored you are!
- Sarah suggested playing Murder In The Dark – a kids game I had totally forgotten about!
- John said that reading a book (physical or kindle/ebook) is the way to go.
- The Twice Diabetes gals said that birth rates spike 9 months after a blackout…
The actual last blackout that we had at my house was that whole electrocution saga – so that wasn’t a normal one at all! Bed (for sleeping purposes) was the only thing on my mind at all.
