Q: I've noticed that five of my uploads have " Hot" in front of the caption. Why are they caterogized that way ?

A: Do you know?

This is a very old lantern, and our only source of light for about 50 hours. We came through the hurricane with our house intact, Our yard did not fare so well. It is a terrible mess. There are still over 300,000 homes in our area without power. It will take weeks of clean-up, to get everything back to some what normal.
We lost all of the contents of 2 fridges and an upright freezer.
Still, there are many things to be thankful for....... and I sure am!!

    So glad you are safe. Your beautiful shot reminds me of the verse - "It is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness."

    Glad you had this hurricane lamp handy. Only us shutterbugs would think to capture the pretty light created by that tiny flame!

    Cuz, when Mom left home in 1939, they still did not have water, heat, or electricity at their farm. Can't wait to see you!
