Incandescent Light Bulb Ban

11 Apr


I was in Lowe’s today and I picked up a few more of the old style incandescent bulbs to put away for later. The government has stuck it’s nose in our business once again and in it’s infinite wisdom it has decided these bulbs use too much energy, therefore, we will be forced to buy those CFL pigtail bulbs from now on. Or, better yet you can buy the LED bulbs for $10 a piece instead of the good old cheap incandescent bulbs. Well, I don’t like the quality of light that comes out of those bulbs, so I bought 10 dozen of the 100 watt bulbs last year and put them back. This year I will get twice that many 60 and 40 watt bulbs to put back for future use. Good luck trying to read by that awful fluorescent  light put out by those CFLs. Thanks, Big Brother. Have you added some spare bulbs to your preps? You might want to get some soon before it is too late. Keep prepping everyone!

      Then you better stock up or you will be suffering FOREVER!

    I stocked up on the ones that were supposedly going to be discontinued. However I have noticed that certain specialty bulbs were exempt from the law and will still be allowed for sale. It seems you found one niche of those specialty bulbs…”Long Life” bulbs.

    Yep, 60 watt incandescents for sale on shelves right now are all “long life”, supposedly. And until the law is amended, they will remain for sale. Hooray loopholes.

      Oh, and if they ban long life 60 watt bulbs, the next day a 61 watt bulb will be available. 🙂

        You are correct for the time being, but the way the environmental nuts are going they might just close those loopholes so I am not taking any chances.
