    During A Power Outage.

    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.

    Power Outage

    A few weeks ago we had the power go out in my apartment complex. I had no tv, no radio, no nothing. My ipod ran out of batteries so there was nothing for me to do, except read. This was the first time in a long time that I read a book.  I lit one of my many...
