What's the best way to pass time when the power goes out?


After 6 days with no power and no heat, thanks to super-storm Sandy, I finally got electricity back yesterday afternoon. My husband and I passed time by playing UNO and Scrabble and listening to a crank radio. It was pretty brutal. What are your suggestions for passing time when the power goes out?

    I was really wishing that I had a stock of good books to read - perhaps next time I'll hit up the library when I'm stocking up on water :)

    My husband and I do have a dog and as luck would have it we happened to be watching my sister's dog during the storm so we definitely did get a little entertainment in watching the two of them play flight.

    A block bon fire sounds pretty cool actually.

    We actually did end up helping our neighbor cut some branches down that were leaning on a wire - it was definitely a bit of a precarious situation.

    I like your suggestion of coming up with ideas to save money in the future.

    It definitely was an ordeal. I'm so thankful our house didn't sustain any real damage.
