I keep a flashlight on my nightstand, but had not checked the batteries in a while. They weren’t dead, but the light was dim. It was enough for me to see my way to the living room to get my headlamp, which was plenty bright enough.
I know that I own at least three other flashlights and another headlamp, but I have no idea where any of those are. I also should really put all of the spare batteries in one place. I doubt I have any D batteries at all (which is what the bedroom flashlight takes) but I think I saw some AAA batteries (spares for the headlamp) recently.
This sounds like a useful organizing ptoject.
Anyway, the power came back on, but my FIOS is still down. I can tether my computer to my phone if need be, but I will try calling in the morning. My guess is that Verizon also doesn’t check their batteries. This entry was originally posted at https://fauxklore.dreamwidth.org/483611.html. Please comment there using OpenID.
