Usually I will just sit on the couch and wait for the power to come back on.

Other times I will go to the store or run some errands.

If I have a blackout, I retire to my car. Inside, stuffed in the dashboard is a 350 watt power inverter. As long as I keep my battery charged (by starting the engine) I can keep playing my PSP/DS… or rent and watch DVDs in my car… :)
Lucky bastard. D<

But what happens when you run out of gas?

Well, to make sure that never happens I have… a JOB! :)

You will refer to this as the ‘j word’ from now on, blasphemer.
Hey buddy, you should be a Russian Cosmonaut, and here's why.

My family usually plays either monopoly or poker with a few torches or lamps on.

Other times I draw or plot out some stories

For blackouts I always recommend getting a power inverter. Make sure you get anything under 400 watts since the average family car can handle that much. And for god sakes, DON'T EXCEED THE INVERTER'S WATTAGE!!! I've heard of people plugging their refrigerators into the thing, only to burn out the inverter and/or their car's elecrical system. O_O

During finals week this last school year, power was out for over 10 days in my town. We got hit by a wicked ice storm that covered everthing in about four inches of solid ice. I think during the majority of it I spent completely piss drunk on Rum.

I say “I think.” because I don't quite remember properly. :kitty:

As cheesy as it is, we light candles and play board games. We play Scrabble and Life. Then when we're bored of board games (XD), we just sit around and talk. But me, I wanna sleep.
