When the Lights Go Out....

We've had quite a few bad thunderstorms, gale force winds here and even a vicious tornado north of us in Springfield, Mass.
I was just wondering how everyone fares when the electricity goes out. We like to power down the TV and computer so there isn't a problem. Also lighting candles makes me peaceful. What is your mode of operation during outages?

If it's a short duration, sit around untill it comes

on, if longer, kick on the generator and finish watching Married with Children...

Pull out the battery lights

Pull out the battery lights (LED) and the oil lamps :) Candles too sometimes depending on the mood!
