I got to spend some time in Kentucky with my family last week, and my dad and I made our traditional trip to Lowe’s—just to walk around. He once again got me in a little panic about incandescent light bulbs, which are slowly but surely being phased out (in case you haven’t heard). Beginning in January, 100-watt incandescent bulbs will no longer be available. . .
Forcing us to start using the fluorescent bulbs instead. . . . (I know, I know—many of you have been using these for years already but I’m holding out. They’re just not the same.)
My dad, for one, is not a happy camper. If he was a Miss America contestant who had to choose a platform, this would be it. He has literally been stockpiling the “old” light bulbs for the last year.
You can see his dismay when we found a final palette of bulbs and this sign at Lowe’s.
(This is why I love my dad. He willingly poses for these blog pictures.)
So, do you have strong opinions about this? Or, is it just my dad? And, if you want more 100-watt bulbs, you better run to the store now—before he buys them all.
