Those friends and relatives that have been nagging you for a while now to visit them- this is the time to visit them! Cause you know why- there's electricity in their area! Yayy! Reason enough! And the bonus is that they'll be happy you took out time.
3. Play Games
Playing games is a great distraction during power cuts! If you are a bunch of people, you could play Dumb Charades or simple shadow games are fun too, and best enjoyed only during long power cuts!
