hi, i'm in one of the areas hurricane Irene will hit. i'm disabled, no car, and a 6-yr-old child. i've weathered these storms for years on the NC coast, didn't think we'd be affected by one in NH! i'm in Keene. we're actually have everything we need except for a flashlight. called all my friends, no one has any that they can spare. i have plenty of candles but for child safety i need a flashlight, big enough to see a few feet, with batteries. i can pay you for/with batteries on the 1st. please PM me!
(i've called around and everywhere says they're sold out of every kind of light and batteries. water, too. hoarders, apparently. crazy!)

Oh no! I would have fedexed one to you. I didn't see this post in time. I hope power stayed on for you or a flashlight found its way to you.
It’s easy to get a flashlight. you can buy it in the local store or supermarket. but it might be a bit expensive. I like to shop online, cos there are many styles and specs to choose. Many Chinese brands such as Fenix, Nitecore, JETbeam, Olight offer quality build flashlight at an affordable price.
1 portable flashlight per person, 1 lamp style flashlight in the main common area, 1 lamp style flashlight in the bathroom, 1 spare portable flashlight for every 3 personal lights, and spare batteries for each light source.
Depending on the size of the home, you may need more. But as a minimum, I stick to 1 on my person, 1 spare, and spare batteries.
I also like putting LED lamps in common areas such as the kitchen and living room. In many instances, you’ll find yourself spending a lot of time in these rooms either preparing food or simply spending time in these rooms. So rather than using a focused beam, a lamp is advised.
