    What you need when the power goes out in winter
    Because of what happened with Sandy when the power went out for days our friends in NJ realized with no fire place they had no heat - nor electricity to cook food. Others had no water being pumped in for their toilets to function and were left defecating in the halls of their apartment buildings. And there were millions with no light as well. With a little forethought and not much money this scary situation can be modified where one can survive in relative comfort.

    Musical instruments, books, art supplies along with games to pass the time are good. A deck of cards works great.

    Any of these items are easy to obtain and would make great gifts for Christmas. Think smart - keep safe. Winter has already begun and these items are essentials when dealing with power outages of longer durations then a few hours. If there is no heat one needs to be able to be pro-active.
