Today's consumer tip: Don't replace outdoor lightbulbs in the dark


A friend said she'd be coming over to pick up a disk with photos and video I took at a recent meeting. She kept getting delayed, and finally, it was dark.

Since I hadn't replaced my burned out lightbulbs for several months, I decided I go out and do it so she could see.

I used my stepstool, and it went well. However, I thought several times that it would be much better to do this in the daylight. What if I dropped one of the odd-sized screws? It would have been a disaster.
