Yea so maybe some of you heard about the flood/blackout that happened earlier today/tonight (in Toronto Canada) but if not, it doesn't really matter.

It was during the blackout that I then realized what it was that I needed to get to make the next one more pleasant. So if someone can suggest some products that would be great, these are some things I need.

1. I would love a good bright LED flashlight that would last a few hours and not have to worry about the battery maybe being dead the next time I need it. (Obviously I will be stocking up on batteries too for the next time)

2. I have a sump pump in my basement and during the blackout it was also raining and thus filling up with water and with the power out a manual hand water pump would have been great to use since I did not enjoy needing to use a pail and getting onto my hands and knees to get it out.

3. A powerful rechargeable battery with a wall plug built into it so I could plug in some essentials.

Thanks for the suggestions!
