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.

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

    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.

    That actually sounds like fun.
