Preppers' delight. With thunderstorms in the forecast, I told the monkeys that they could pretend to have a power outage. They (and I) could play with flashlights and it would be a good drill. We do that from time to time and they actually are happy when we have one. The little monkey is a flashaholic light dad, so she got into it. The big monkey played with her for a little while, read, and went to sleep early (side benefit). We have been using our lights on the lowest setting in candle mode. Bright enough and preserves battery life. With the thunderstorms actually here, I thought I would take a beam shot outside. Was rushing so it came out lousy. But that modified Fenix PD35vn was blazing. It is dark out. And I aimed upward. The spill lit up outside like day. And I was hoping to catch some lit up rain.
