Summer's in full gear, and with it comes thunderstorms that can be, at times, downright nasty. If you're anything like me, you love watching a big storm pass by. But sometimes the thunder, lightning, rain and wind can wreak havoc on power lines, causing widespread blackouts.
Just last week, "a deadly string of thunderstorms whipped through the mid-Atlantic region, downing trees and power lines," reports the New York Times. Officials told reporters that restoring electricity after such strong storms could take up to a week. Are you as prepared as you could be for those dark days?
Most night lights are useless once the power goes out, but Motivators' promotional Eco-I-Lite multifunction power failure light automatically turns on when the lights go out. Its rechargeable lithium battery lasts up to seven hours, providing brightness when you need it most.
Having that little bit of light can make a big difference once darkness falls.
