    Default argh!! either go out or don't...

    power keeps flickering, now I don't really want people not to have power around here right now (since the temp is -2 with -30 wind chill). But darnit, I need flashlight vindication, especially since I just got a new Eagletac T10L for xmas.


    ah well, I'm ready if it happens at least.

    Dear Santa,

    Please bring me 5 hours of darkness. I'll take the hit for my neighbors.

    Hit the main breaker.

    You can pretend the power is out as long as you want!

    After you turn the breaker on, then the real power is out and you run out of batteries.

    If you don't have enought batteries for a 5 hour blackout, you need to reevaluate a bit.. you're certainly not a flashaholic if you're not ready for a few days.
    List of flashlights that used to be here has been removed (by me) to save our search function. NOW USE IT.

    Go for a walk in the dark, turn off your lights and play blackout, take a tent and go winter camping, lots of ways to use your lights without a sub zero blackout. You do not want one, period, they can get dangerous fast, especially for older citizens and children who fare less well in cold temps. Besides which, you sure your pipes wont freeze in below zero temps with no heat tapes, etc? You dont want frozen pipes either.

    Find other ways to vindicate your flashlights...
