Be Prepared. This winter we should expect to see El Niño conditions. This means a TON of rain. Last time we has saturated hills that collapsed, homes that slide down hills, muddy streets, internet outage, and power outages.
On a hike a few months ago while on a backpacking campout, I was introduced to the Luci light. I was awesome. A lightweight, collapsible, solar-powered, portable LED lantern. Costs $15. I will keep a few of these in our Emergency Preparedness Kits and take 1 or 2 on backpacking trips with us. They are also good as centerpiece when you can’t have a fire but still want to gather for one.
