Lighting Beyond The Pumpkins

Postby nosferatu » Fri Dec 05, 2008 1:37 pm

We have just experienced our second power cut in two weeks. We lit our house with a pack of 50 tea lights and numerous candles (very Dickensian) but most impressive were the pumpkin flicker and rainbow lights that we used in our living room.

It felt a bit like living in a lava lamp at one point but when I went to retrieve something from my car, from outside it looked like we had the aurora borealis happening.
in the name of The Carver and the holey Gourd. Amen.

Nos, get some petzl lights (every kid should have one)
A tikka plus / zipka plus ..have a look on ebay.
The risk of longer power cuts over coming winters is inevitable!
I don't think a 50 pack of ikea candles would last long under duress! :lol:

..also (this might be good for the kid in you)

These seriously rock in a power out or for camping, roughing it, days out etc!

in fact theres a guy who powers his barbeque with one (no more charcoal) ..hole in the bottom for a gasifier stove!
