Daylight, but we've had these winter days now for a while, and I know it will be overcast and similar to night time.

Ok, I was just wondering since you said you had to use candlelight. You don't have lanterns?

I've got tea-candles and glasses (lanterns) with various colors.

That actually seems a bit romantic.

Really, where?

Yeah you mentioned it, but if you're happy with that effort for a clear passion, then that's fine and understood.

i live used to live in a place where the electric goes off for days at a time i would get a bike with a dynamo on it to power my laptop if the worst came to the worst
what i am saying is we are all worth the minimum wage from the neck down it is what is up there that gets you that bit extra .
when the power went out for days i had a tv that worked on 12v a coal fire oil /gas & cooked all my neighbours xmas dinners when the power died there are times when i will turn off the power JUST to see how it is ?
you are 1 of 2 things in life a survivor or a victim what are you

When the lights go out, let them go out with a memory of a beautiful story.

Don't let them go out without quarrel and things I have to lie and worry about.

For every bad story there's probably a good story.
Yes we dwell on the bad, maybe because we want to make people aware.
But if I know when the electricity goes down, and one can plan it, who wants to stay with a bad story and angry people?
Not me.

Get two domestic feed wires, one red and one black attached to a fuseboard, 2 spikes for inline termination, and a pair of rubber gloves and a fire extinguisher just in case.

When power is interrupted, spike the mains to your house before the meter, somewhere hidden. When power is swithced back on...voila! free lecky.

lol.

Thanks to everyone who posted here!

Just as I posted my last clip in a race against the clock it happened.

Everything went dead.

All was dark and spooky.

One person I'm living with wanted to look at photos by candlelight.

It ended in an anti-climax however.

I fell asleep and when I woke up the electricity was back.

Sounds like you were abducted by aliens.

They must have erased your memory.

Who knows?

Pity my nightmares were about memories that can never be erased - coming to school and copying the mathematics homework because the teacher was too incompetent to explain it.

And beyond that I vaguely recall living on a planet where the kitty cats rule, and I had to pose and mew for ages just to get a carrot-stick or some vegetarian treat.
