Last week my wife and I were shopping for furniture in a store inside a mall. It was between 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM on a very hot, sunny day. About 20 minutes into our shopping the lights go out – everywhere in the mall. I guess that kind of thing can happen on super hot days when everybody is running their air conditioners.
Fortunately we were not so deep into the furniture store that we couldn’t see some of the daylight filtering in through the skylights out in the center of the mall. However, if we had come in later and been in the mall a while, we would have now found ourselves in low light. If we had been all the way in the back of the furniture store, we would have been in low light conditions on a bright sunny day.
Moral of the story: carry a flashlight, even in the daytime.
