{good reminder}

Yesterday evening electricity went out for awhile in our area. A good reminder to make sure you are prepared for anything that might happen. We always have lots of candles but I realized we could use couple of more flashlights. We had two handy but it would be nice to have at least one in each room. Flashlights are safer than candles when you have pets or children.
It was kind of fun walking around with a flashlight. :) It always feels so good when the electricity comes back though. When we lived in Fort Chipewyan (a small Indian village way up north), the electricity went out for hours and hours and it was totally pitch black. It started to do mind tricks on you after a while. We sure take things for granted.
Gotta get back to finishing our 72 hour emergency kit. There's still things I need to add to it.
I have mentioned it before but I'll say it again. If there's some kind of natural disaster or emergency, sometimes it takes up to 3 days for aid to start coming in. Even the government nowadays recommends that everyone should have a 72 hour emergency kit. Anything you might need for three days packed in large containers or backpacks.
Huge fires blazing in Los Angeles again. Huge forest fires over here in Canada, in British Columbia. Never know what nature cooks up for us even when living in a relatively safe area. Be prepared!

I need to remember to take some macro pictures too. A must every time we have flowers. :)
The sun was actually bright orange. It was gorgeous. We've had +30C weather for awhile now. I'm looking forward to fall and some cooler weather. I wasn't made for heat. :)
