Big brother in the U.S. is stepping in and shutting off manufacture of incandescent light bulbs starting in 2012.
I’ll resist the urge to rant because the dirty deed was done back in early 2008. We’re already screwed.
The trick is to get enough for personal use to at least last out our own lifetimes.
I’ve been buying cases of 40 Watt and 75 Watt bulbs. That’s the two sizes I use in my house.
The problem is remembering all the other bulbs in your house. Those floodlights on the corner of your house, the appliance bulb in your refrigerator and stove. How about those yellow bug lights in your carport? You have to have those stocke piled too. You’re not going to cram one of those new bulbs into your fridge. They are too darn big.
Anyone else getting ready?
