Ice Breaker – Lights Out

Each week on The Stretched Blog, we ask an ice breaker question.  The questions are designed to help us get to know each other here in The Stretched Community.  I’ll provide my answer to the question here in the post, and then you can leave your response in the comments.  While you’re in the comments section, see how others answered the ice breaker question.

We lost power for 85 hours at our house this week.  Power was just restored before lunch time.  With this in mind, I’m hoping you can help out with this week’s Stretched Ice Breaker.

Question:  (Keeping it clean of course) What’s a fun family activity for times when the lights go out?

My Answer:  Reading.  I actually did a bit more reading with the power out.  There was no temptation to turn on the television or to be on the computer.  I finished reading Bryan Allain‘s new eBook, Community Wins, and I almost finished reading Love Works by Joel Manby.  These are two books that I would definitely recommend – even if you never lost power.  Maybe having the power out isn’t such a bad thing.

There you have it – my answer.  Now, it’s your turn.  Answer this week’s ice breaker question by leaving a comment.  I look forward to reading your response!
