My thoughts exactly. I remember the power cuts in the 70s, it was great. We had oil lamps, the Victorian brass kind with the big glass 'bulb',
normally only of ornamental use, and loads of candles. Just another reason why the 70s was the best time ever
to be a kid.
With a more responsible head, heating is a bit of a concern. Most central heating systems are electrically dependent. Mine is, and I have no other
form of heating. We had an old parafin heater back in the day, wouldn't fancy going there though, they can, if not properly tuned, produce profuse
amounts of black soot. Besides, it's probably not even legal to stand within 3 metres of one in the Health and Safety age.
Might be worth investing in some thermals. Layers.
Which makes me think, could lead to a baby boom.
