How about making a DIY solar lamp.
Here is an Eco-Friendly Sun Jar. This looks like something I might like to try.
Ha! With a hurricane and almost certainly tornadoes, also, I should have made this earlier. My solar yard lights that I bought during the electrical outage last year can be used if I need them.
Have you ever made one of these? I just purchased the solar garden lights after the tornado cut off our electricity. At night, I brought them in at night. They were a great comfort to me.
Do you ever use solar garden/yard lights for lighting when the lights go out?
