12-Hour “Lanterns” for Emergency Kits

When hurricane Florence passed through recently, I pulled out my “Storm Box” and inside happened to be several Halloween glow sticks that were at least three years old.

To my great surprise, they made perfect “nightlights” throughout the house during the days without power.

The package said they “last up to 12 hours” and they did, even after several years beyond purchase.

They were especially handy with small children who can carry around their own light. I’m taking advantage of Halloween season this year to restock my storm box. Liane
