With bad weather can also come power outages, which is exactly what I experienced last night in my neighborhood.

I can’t believe I’m saying this because it’s — you know — MAY! But it snowed pretty hard and, throughout the Treasure Valley, snow was taking down trees and knocking out power.

This wasn't necessarily the case in my neighborhood, but rather, the snow was causing car accidents aplenty. Literally on my street, there was a car that swerved into a poll and knocked out all of our power until about 6 or 7am the next morning.

With the power being out so long, it got me brainstorming (and asking around) for the best things to do during a power outage that makes the time disappear.
