What exactly are people prepping for? the last time I saw this level of hysteria was before the millennium bug that failed to materialise.
They are prepping for anything, like Hurricane Sandy that was unexpected really. The weather is indeed changing and we can expect huge storms on the West coast in the future also.
I recommend oil or kerosene lamps a good jug of fuel for them and some lamp wicks. Can't rely to much on batteries IMO.
Liquide fuel is heavy and dangerous. Go to the sporting goods store. You can get a very small LED lantern that literally fits in your hand that has 100+ lumens and will run for 24+ hours before a battery change. $35.
Use rechargable batteries with a small solar panel charging system and you're set.
