Back Bay fire: How to pass time without power

Here are some ideas to pass the time while you wait for your power to come back on.

If you don't have power we realize that you probably can't access the Internet and read this. But if your phone battery hasn't turned red yet, here are some ideas for you to pass the time while your power is out.


-Play a board game. When was the last time you actually sat with some friends and played a board game? Remember when you would beg your parents to play "Clue," "Monopoly" and "Candy Land"? Well now is your chance to do that. Sure, you'll have to do it by candle light, but isn't that better? Add some drinks to the mix and before you know it, you're a few hours closer to getting your power back. Just don't burn down your home.


-Read a book. Your phone, Kindle, television and computer are likely dead or dying. It's the perfect opportunity to give your eyes a rest from all of that screen time. Break out the candles and dive in to that book you've been meaning to get to.


-Go to sleep! It is late after all. And with everyone's busy and hectic schedules it's a great break from the grueling pace of daily life. Get a good night's rest and hopefully the power will be back on by morning so you can get back to draining your phone by endlessly posting on Twitter and Facebook how refreshed you feel.
