    Last Winter

    It's extremely hard. Can't see the words very well. I was better off using a flashlight, which i switched to since I couldn't see. That was last winter. We had a power outtage.

    During A Power Outage.

    It's the perfect time to read, but sometimes a flashlight isn't handy. So that makes it hard but... sometimes you just can't put the book down. Candle light is the next best option.
