the Why and the When.
See the light bulb by the door? It has been on, 24/7 for 365 days, for the past 10 years.
The home is the rental next door. It is also the home of the famous Rocky the runaway dog.
The house sold to investors 5 months ago, and we dread the renters moving.
Because of that light by the door.
The Light went OUT... for 3 days.
we thought they moved. I freaked out because
This is Beau's Ball Game runaway. He only runs in the bright sun.
BUTT every morning at 3:30 and 5 AM, I take him out to potty and this area is where he GOES.
He eats grass there, does bidness there and without that light on it is black dark.
If I use a flashlight it blinds him and he stops and will not do his bideness.
I pondered what to do. I fretted what to do.
I went to Amazon and searched for hours .
Aha! Solar Lanterns! I clicked Buy Now
The lanterns are solar powered.
They need 3 to 5 hours a day of sun to keep them charged, and are auto off/on at dusk and daylight.
I will hang them in the best spot to get the most sun, the cute hanger idea is to test how much sun is where and for how long. As soon as I determine that, they will be clipped to the fence and left there.
They are heavy and waterproof and meant to be in rain, sleet, hail or snow.
PEE SSSS.... I can't test to see if they work because the morning of the day they came to our front porch The Light Came Back On....
We think the power was turned off, because the cars were there and the house was in black out.
Anyhoo.... We are happy the light is on, and we have the lanterns and they will work when they move out PLUS they are Perfect for power outages. Just charge, turn them off, put away and take out when needed.
Do you know how I know they work?
