All it takes are Dollar Store batteries

You are going to need batteries for all of these options.

Have as many flashlights as you think you may need. Three or four battery-operated flashlights should be good but you should have at least one flashlight for every person in the household.

Then, think about if you work late at night. Do you like to work at the kitchen table or a desk? Have a battery-operated lamp at your kitchen table or desk.

Do you like to listen to the radio? Have a battery-operated radio.

Have plenty of batteries in your house where you can find the batteries easily. Do you have a certain place?

All I want for you is to not burn candles. Just rely on battery-operated devices. You do not want your house to accidentally catch on fire!

You can purchase batteries easily at your local dollar store. Isn't that easier and better than burning your house down?

Finally, be prepared for bad winter weather. Stay off of the roads. If you have to, call off of work. With bad winter weather roads, you are not going to get there anyway.
