Let me know if a thread like this one exist or not.
Thanks a bunches.


Let's say you are stuck in the middle of a blackout that last for hours. What do you do in that blackout? How often do you experience blackouts?

Enjoy!!!

Hook up some candles or hang a torch nearby and have a bit of a read. Or use my phone to find out where the blackout is affecting through local groups and Facebook etc. (mobile data), then head to the nearest pub until it sorts itself out.

I always have my phone fully charged, as well as my 3DS. If they both die, enough time will have passed that I'll be able to fall asleep, probably.

During the day: Lock the door and go outside.

At night time: Lock the door and go to sleep.

Pretty much what the others have said. Light a candle, find out where the blackout is and either wait or go some place that has power.

I'm fine with the blackout, as long as I have some music to listen to and I'm not a person who feels like I need FaceBook, Twitter, or any other social media platforms at all times and as I said before, I don't really care as long as I have my music to listen to.

Uh I'd just go outside and if I came back and it was still out I'd go back outside. I have rarely had to deal with blackouts but I have experenced the city shutting off power due to not paying electricity bills quite a few times in my life, but in those situations having one of those keys to regain access to the Meter Can can help till payday

I continue as usual until my phone and laptop batteries die. At which point I shut down and wait to start receiving stimulus again.

Check for spiders and then go back to sleep.
There isn't much quality of life without electricity.
