12-9-12 Question of the Day!!

Do you have a working flashlight beside your bed or close by in case the power goes out in the night?
(I ask this question because our power went out this morning at 4 A.M. and when I reached for the flashlight that was supposed to be in the drawer of my bedside table, I discovered it missing! Dh had taken it and used it out in the garage......)

I do. But that doesn't mean the batteries in it are any good

I don't keep a flashlight beside my bed but I have a very bright flashlight function on my cell phone.

I never notice when the power goes out at night if I am asleep.

I have never woke up in the middle of the night from the power going out. I don't normally wake up for anything all night so the first I am going to notice the power out is when I make my way to the kitchen and see the microwave clock flashing or not on if the power is still out.

I keep candles in a chest in the living room so if the lights go out we can have light. I also keep 3 regular flashlights on my computer desk.

DH has a Maglite flashlight that he keeps in his nightstand. I have a book light that I keep on my nightstand that I could use in a pinch.

Yes, I do. It's shaped like Curious George and it was a gag gift from my DH one Christmas. But, the joke was on him, because I love that little monkey light.

Yes, am looking at it right now. And, it is on my side of the bed. I am awakened if the power goes out at night as the fan will stop and the house would be too quiet!

Yes, there is a small flashlight on DH's nightstand. We have four dogs that sleep in our bedroom, so more than the electricity going out it comes in handy if there is a dog rustling around with something or making a weird noise.
