    In northern climates although not really needed in an emergency kit, people on propane service should always have a propane lantern/lamp designed for a wall mount, etc. That can easily be on standby piped in should there be a multiple day w/o electricity.

    Someone mentioned this earlier but it bears repeating… Ladies especially?   Learn how to open your electric garage doors when the power goes out.   Something I did not think about UNTIL it happened.

    Do not have a hurricanes here in Sweden like in the US, but power outages we have some times, the worst I have been in was about 10 hours I think Now i have an assortment of flashlights, a Trangia Stove, and what you sort of are missing, an emergency charger of my cellphone, to be able to make calls but also get info on when the power probably will be back. My electricity company will send me an SMS with info about the situation. Yet it have not been that bad that the cellphone tower battery backup have been depleted. I also have some candles but not nearly as many as what you got. And I do not have it all in one place. Will look further what they recommend you prepare with in Sweden.

    JJ, good job with the kit, it helps for sure when the next Desaster strikes.
    May I suggest one important item, when it comes to candels and Laterns in a Confined Space.
    We have a fire blanket in the kitchen and next my Weber Grill, just in case. So if you can spare some Space in your kit, a fire blanket wouldfit perfectly, as a "just in case" measure.
    Did you have had some serious trouble with the Temperatures in your area? Thanks again and all the best to you and your family
    Kay

    Harbor freight offers an inexpensive solar charger. I used it for charging my NOAA radio and it works pretty decent for the price. Just gotta be sure to make sure its in good sun, and also get the voltage regulator! total cost was around 40 bucks for both. Its a trickle charger but keeps things topped off. Trying to buy the adapter to hook more then one together and borrow my friends and see how much more that helps. and yes your solar outdoor light idea is awesome, good to charge AAs!!

    I'm putting together a couple of "blackout" kits for my parents and a family friend. Very basic – hand cranked torch, tea light candles, matches, lighter, small AA lantern similar to that coleman. A easy candle holder are old coffee mugs, they are stable, won't blow over, have built in handles for transport

    I've used the cheap 4 AA battery powered led xmas lights to run up the stairs and round the landing since stairs could cause injuries during a power outage. If you have rechargable batteries then one of the wind up usb phone chargers can be used to top them up. USB things like those slippers or small blanket can be used if you get the little wind turbine thing thats supposed to go on mountain bikes, tape it to a pole and stick it in your lawn. I'm trying to stay away from burning things 🙂

    … cont: You need to think about how you are going to get out of your garage in the morning if the garage door is electric. How you are going to shower if you have an electric water heater. How you are going to pay bills if everything is on a hard drive in your PC. How you are going to keep groceries in your fridge or freezer. How you are going to make phone calls (both cordless landline, and cell phones need electricity to work) to family members or for work-related matters. Good luck!

    I think that this is a good start, but the use of electricity is much more pervasive in our society than simply providing light. You need to be able to operate for a day, or two, or a week, in your home without electric power. Going to work, operating a home business out of another location, going to school, all without power at home. Your kit may need to have a battery-powered (or manual wind up) alarm clock.

    WRT the running water, it would have been a good idea to stock up ahead of time, fill bathtubs, bottled water, etc. Same with gasoline. I would also recommend a propane heater and extra propane bottles for the heat. But all of this could be easier said than done depending on your living situation. If you live in an apartment, it would be a lot tougher to store a bunch of stuff. If you had a house then I suppose there would be more flexibility. It is a crappy situation all the way around.

    Dude, I feel for you. It has to have been rough and I don't think very many people could have foretold how rough it was going to be. I don't claim to have all of the answers and I am sure you did the best you could given your situation. If I had lived on Long Island, I think I would have taken a short vacation and been out of the affected zone. However that also comes with it's own set of problems. For sure.

    @jrmakawoody Yea that would be a great addition! I don't have one yet. I have an electric oil heater and another elecrtric room heater that I would use with my generator, but that depends on having fuel. I usually have at least 20 gallons on hand, but that can go fast. I will have to check into tye kerosene heaters. Thanks jj
