Hot diggity dam
By Dr. E. Kirsten Peters

AS THE LONG season of darkness sweeps over the country, it's a natural time to think about lighting  and how dependent we are on electricity during this dim time of year. You can heat your home with several different energy sources, including natural gas, heating oil or wood. But unless you're living off-the-grid, the lights throughout your abode burn brightly because of electricity from the grid.
Yes, I have a couple of candles, a flashlight and two kerosene lamps in my household. But I don't use them. Instead, like more than 99% of us, I just flip up a switch to turn on electric lights throughout my house.
