Today, my power went out due to a huge snow storm. I was in desperate need of candles and flashlights. I had to walk to the store since the roads were closed. I walked 4 miles in the blizzard. When I got home, the power came back on. FML

Exactly, you should have that shit at your house, it's not the first storm of the season and it wasn't a ninja snow storm, where the weather man is like today 80 and sunny, looks outside, never mind -20 and snow.

What did you need to do that you needed candles that badly?


#17 has got that right.

Unless someone was dying and you don't have neighbors that could help out, there's no reason to walk 4 miles in a blizzard for some candles and flashlights.
We survived without electricity for thousands of years, I'm sure you could have gone a least a few hours, of not a few days.
YDI for being a dumbass.

At least you got your exercise in for the day.

Why didn't you just go to sleep if you had no light? Kind of an obvious solution, if you ask me.

It's not as if candles would be bright enough to get any kind of productive work done, anyway.

Go to sleep at night (pro tip: that's the bit when the sky goes all dark) like the diurnal creature you are.

Yeah, maybe they're Amish, so no flashligts, phones, neighbours (what?), for when their ELECTRICAL POWER goes out.
Oh wait, what?

you don't have to subtract car necessarily. OP could go sit in there car, where there's light, heat, radio, etc. they don't necessarily have to drive it, they could just wait out the power outage in it. for example maybe he/she had a paper or work to do that they needed light for and had to get done, you can write in a car.
