While investigating certain cultists activities in their city and the surrounding region, the heroes discovered many payments and exchanges being made with pearls, instead of gold or other currencies. This clue led them to Yarmouth, a fishing village with very little claim-to-fame except the island-temple ziggurat off their coast, called the Spiradot.

Although the Spiradot hadn’t been a functioning temple for centuries, the light on top had always been a magical beacon to sailors and ships. Recently, the lighthouse keeper died, and instead of following tradition by passing the duties to a family member the mayor of Yarmouth handed management of the temple and its light to strangers. Not long after, the light started behaving strangely: alternating strange colors and increasing in luminosity beyond what known spells can achieve.

After arriving in town, the heroes quickly decided that whoever was managing the temple was connected to the cult, and rowed out to the island as a vicious storm rolled in. Their suspicions were confirmed as they were attacked upon entry, and they had to fight their way up each floor, until finally arriving at the light itself.

On the rain-slick stone and amidst stormy winds, the heroes saw something that defied belief between flashes of lightning: a colossal creature was approaching from the sea, drawn to the corrupted crimson beacon. It matched the description of the dark undersea slumberer Ulgamoth, an Old One of incredible destructive power.

The light itself appeared to be a kind of living luminescent orb, and the cultist magicians were flinging painful spells at it like magical scourges, whipping it into submission. As the living light took damage, it began to flash frantically, each pulse encouraging the Old One to come closer to shore.

While the magicians focused on injuring the light, round after round, the heroes had to split their attention between trying to heal the light and fighting off the fiends the cult had summoned.

With most of their healing magic being poured into the light, those in combat had to endure punishment that pushed them to the brink, while dispatching the cultists and avoiding the slippery edges of the platform.

Finally, with the cultists and their servants destroyed, but Ulgamoth being close enough for them to hear his maddening roar, the heroes focused all their blessings and heals into the pulsing light. Finally, its red beams turned to cleansing white, and it ignited in an explosion of light that was so bright it could be seen a hundred miles away. To the heroes it was blinding, but somehow calming and comforting—to Ulgamoth, at that proximity, it was like a bomb. The Old One was disintegrated in the holy explosion.


The dungeon pieces are mostly Dwarven Forge, with some terrain items from various miniature companies and games (and a few homemade bits like the water tiles). The "ceilings" that provided the different levels are sheets of black plexiglass, and some printed stone pattern I just taped on there. The lighthouse I made myself from some popsicle sticks, twine, and a spray-painted Quaker Oats can—with a little camp lantern for the light. Ulgamoth himself is the Great Cthulhu "miniature" from Horrorclix!

One of my personal favorites, that really helped organize my bag, is a potato keep sack.

My wife bought the set of three because we thought they were a good idea, but it turns out that if we can't SEE potatoes we never USE potatoes and everything gets really gross after about a month. That was the end of that.

Some years later I was looking for a new way to organize my messenger bag and this thing fell out of my closet while I was rummaging around. It's been pretty much perfect for keeping all the odds and ends from floating around chaotically inside my bag.

Currently it holds

  • spare plastic bags
  • a box of band-aids
  • a basic toiletry kit (deoderent, hair gel, toothbrush and paste)
  • Tylenol
  • babybell cheeses (they last indefinitely at room temps and make a great snack)
  • expandable travel cup
  • expandable LED light

    All that stuff used to simply rattle around in my bag and was always getting damaged or lost when I needed it. Now I can just pull out the whole sack and access the contents from either end!

REI has a very good camping checklist. Of course it's a US site and REI sells high quality stuff that is usually out of the price range of most beginners, so use it as a general guide on what you need, not necessarily the exact items you want to buy. Last time I was down under I was a shocked at the markup on imported US brands, so make do with what you can get down there.

I'm assuming you're going car camping; driving up to a campsite and unloading the gear. And I'm going to assume family of five means three kids say 8-14 or so. With older teens or more adults you'll need to pack more food and might need a bigger cooler, need a bigger tent or different sleeping arrangements.

Here are some recommendations for the basics. I'm linking to Amazon so you can see the products, and hopefully find something similar locally.

Tent - Coleman Montana 8. It's a well regarded tent for the price. Big enough for a family, can fit a couple of queen size air mattresses in there (kids can share a full size mattress or bring smaller inflatables). Whatever tent you get, make sure you take it out of the bag and try setting it up a few times. When setting up the tent, make sure you take out the poles and stakes and set them in a specific location, so they don't get lost and they don't get stepped on (and broken). If anything is confusing, get it sorted out before you go!

Sleeping bags - depends on where you are going and when. You can buy Coleman synthetic bags pretty cheap at most outdoor stores. Synthetic bags are generally heavy and bulky, but will get the job done. The rating on the bag is generally the extreme rating... as in you probably won't die at that temp but it might be a cold miserable night. Mummy bags save some weight and some bulk and are warmer, but some don't like the constrictive nature of the bags. Bring pillows from home to make things more comfortable (but note that you may have to wash them when you get home). Throw pillows will work, probably better than "backpacking" pillows. Or you can bring pillow cases and stuff them with spare clothes and jackets... I generally use throw pillows car camping.

Mattress pad - if you're car camping, don't bother with backpacking pads. Bring full size Coleman air mattresses, or even a queen. Remember you'll need some way to inflate the pad; a battery operated pump will work but is slow. You can get a pump that plugs in, but you 1. need an inverter in the car, 2. need an extension from the car into the tent since the inflated mattress probably won't fit through the door of the tent. Make sure you get the dimensions of all the air mattresses and the dimensions of the tent and make sure everything fits with some room to spare. Remember that you also need room for gear; of course the car is right there and you can always leave gear in the car, but on a chilly morning it's nicer to just open your bag and get a hat rather than run out to the car.

Stove - Camp Chef Everest dual burner propane stove. The Coleman dual burner stove is a classic and works well.

Cookset - I use full size pots and pans for car camping. You can just bring what you have at home (not too big, the stove won't fit big pots and pans), or maybe find cheaper stuff in the clearance section of some stores (if the stuff at home is too nice to bring camping). Along with the pots and pans, bring your usual utensils. You can bring paper plates, plastic cups and forks/knives, or buy "camping" stuff. Don't forget the spices and condiments, trivets for hot plates, coffee, tea, bottle/wine opener...

Water - Is there potable water at the campsite? Are you bringing your water or do you need to filter? I generally bring a couple of Coleman 5 gallon water jug. They collapse until I need them... but you really can't fill them all the way up since they're really difficult to carry. Or you might be able to buy water at the grocery store and just bring what you need - 1 gallon per day per person should be fine, more if it's hot and you're being very active.

Washing - if there's no washing facilities, you want to bring a wash basin to clean up the dishes and utensils. Don't forget the dish soap and sponge for cleaning pots and pans.

Cooler - Coleman Xtreme 70quart. Or the Igloo Max. I prefer something smaller since I've got a smaller sedan and will run into town more frequently. If you're only going overnight, you may only need a small cooler, but if your kids drink lots of milk or only cool juice, you may want to invest in a good size, well rated cooler.

Headlamps - it's good for everyone to have their own headlamps. The Black Diamond Spot is a good headlamp from a great company. You can a cheap Energizer Headlamp for under $15 for young kids, they're not great but work well enough.

Camp lantern - Coleman propane lanterns are the ol' standard, work great and cast great light. Uses the same 1lb propane tanks as the stove. But many are going with LED lanterns... these Cheap camp lanterns on Amazon seem like a pretty good deal, I've got some like them and they work fine. Very bright and very white, but cheap and effective.

Packing/hauling - Rubbermaid tote. These tubs make a great way to haul and store gear. I also store food in my tubs; make sure you can secure them so critters can't get in.

Tarp - bring a couple. It's good to have one tarp to hang over the cooking / eating area. You'll need some rope or cord to tie these up.

Folding chairs and tables - bring 'em if you've got 'em. It's much easier to cook standing up at a table.

Firewood - call ahead or check online, some campsites have firewood restrictions; some places you can't forage for wood and you need to buy it locally.

Garbage bags - bring a couple of big ones, a bunch of smaller bags if you need to pack up smelly stuff.

Well, I hope that enough for a start. Good luck!

u/MNLegoBoy · 9 pointsr/flashlight

Cause all my buckets got a light in it

Thank you for this amazing offer, if I win I'll do an epic review

Edit: Also why is there a subscribe and save option on amazon for this

Edit 2: Since it fits in the budget, couldn't I get 2?

u/hypnobioscope · 4 pointsr/ElectricForest

just bought these yesterday. [2 pack of bright ass battery lantern] (

And I got battery powered fairy lights to go around my canopy.
I also recommend a [head lamp!] ( they're awesome for wearing around your neck so you can quickly access light to pee in not the dark and see around the camp site. It's annoying to walk around with it on all night though, goes in peoples eyes. You can get cheaper ones, and cheap ass ones at walmart. this is a pretty decent one.

u/bmengineer · 4 pointsr/flashlight

People seem to like the Lumintop IYP365, but it has a very similar pocket clip. Same goes for the Klarus P20, and the Thrunite Ti4. The only popular option with a different style of clip seems to be the Manker E21 - if you can find it in stock somewhere.

u/SomeDudeInPortland · 4 pointsr/vandwellers

There are plenty of people who live with no inverters and it is certainly more efficient, but it's really not that big a deal unless you are cutting your power usage way too close to start with. My budget was tiny when I started, so rather than buying a bunch of 12v appliances and adapters i just bought a cheap inverter. I use my laptop 12+ hours/day on my 205AH battery bank with a 265w panel feeding it. I also use [rechargeable lanterns] ( for my light source which are charged through the USB port on my inverter.

My batteries are generally fully charged by about 11am, but I also make a conscious choice to stay where the weather is nice for the most part. I spent most of this summer in Flagstaff, AZ and I'll be moving south when it gets cold here at 7,000ft

These guys are bright as fuck. Easily lights up my whole campsite. Almost a little too bright if it's on the table like eye level lol. Last year we used a big carabiner to hook it to the canopy.

u/Ksrugi · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I grew up in Louisiana and always had these at the ready in case another Katrina came by. Barebones and lightweight in case you need to get up and move.

Multitool - Something that's sturdy, offers plenty of options, but also is lightweight. If I got washed out, this would be one of the top things I'd want coming with me.

First Aid Kit - You just never know. Water can hide a lot of nasty stuff like sharp metal edges, broken glass, etc. The kit I've linked to also comes with a multitool.
Water Filtration System - Dehydration will get you before anything else. Southern heat combined with physical exertion takes a lot out of anyone and tiny filtration systems like this will take care of you without adding bulk.

Meal Replacement Bars - You'll ideally want a few days emergency food. I recommend meal replacement bars that are high in protein and fiber and no less than 500 calories. They'll provide decent nutrition and should make you feel satiated for at least 2-4 hours. I don't have a recommendation on this one because there are so many brands and flavors.
Hand Crank Lantern - A reliable source of light that you can crank on your own. Generally, I avoid using generators and the like. I'm paranoid about electricity after flooding occurs.

Whistle - Great for alerting people without tearing up your vocal chords. It's also very, very, very good to have in case animals that shouldn't come by are nearby.
Dust Mask - If your city floods, there's going to be a lot of crud that comes up from the sewers and a lot of things accumulating inside buildings. Save your lungs and your noses.
Portable Battery - I love this age of technology we're in. Charge this a few days before the storm hits and you'll be able to keep your phone charged for days if the power goes out.
Insect Repellant - The ample amount of still water after a hurricane is prime bug nesting. A little repellant goes a long way.
Paddle Your Own Canoe by Nick Offerman - Or any book really to help pass the time. This is a fantastic read though. :)

u/dittybopper_05H · 3 pointsr/preppers

> Watch this and then let us know if it is worth being underground for 30 days or 180 days or a year.

More like 2 weeks, not a month, and even before then you could go outside for brief periods, and indeed you will most likely have to do so to get rid of things like garbage and human waste.

With an adequate supply of books, and a couple of 30 day camping lanterns or some other alternative lighting like a deep cycle RV battery and an efficient LED light fixture, you shouldn't NEED to recharge anything.

Plus, and I hate to say this, but the sort of person who generally ends up in prison, and then ends up being held in solitary for long periods of time, is generally one who already has some pretty abnormal behaviors to begin with. Using them as an example is on pretty shaky ground, especially since we're talking about a much shorter period of enforced confinement.

Zip tie to canopy and you'll have plenty of lighting.

u/xPofsx · 2 pointsr/shroomers

Ok, I'll tell you what you can do to get a few oz's of shroomy delight for yourself for a measly ~$150.

This is going to be my take on growing, or in other words - pofs' tek. Yea...I like the sound of that. Except it's not going to be very detailed.

Pofs' Tek - A guide for the partially lazy

So, basically, I cut out a few steps - that of making your own substrate and and sterilizing it and prepping a bunch of jars and grain spawn. I use Out-Grow's bulk supplies package which consists of 4 quart jars of sterilized rye grain, and 4 lbs of compost (manure-based substrate) and it costs $35 + shipping which was $15 for me for a total of $50

Then I used a 13.5qt clear bin I bought from amazon made by Iris, which cost $5/ea + $4 shipping (which is a steal in bulk, but you'll only need 1 for this guide) which will cost $9, or $59 total

I did this inside so I used a Timer($7), a Lamp Cord ($9), and a 6500k cfl ($8) for a total of $24 on this part (which can be replaced by sunlight if you have a room with natural lighting) and a total of $83

I used spores from - b+ to be specific. I've switched to's spores since, because they are cheaper and come with a lot more spores inside the syringe. You'll run around $15-$30 for spores no matter where you get em and bring the total to $113 assuming $30 for syringe and shipping.

I also bought Polyfill ($7) for a total of $120 bare minimum start price.

And now you have all of the essentials.

I'll write the growing process later.

u/hobo_3 · 2 pointsr/explainlikeimfive

A lot of times you can even find the exact unbranded product on alibaba for much, much cheaper (assuming you want at least 500 padded rifle cases).

For example, here is a LED lantern on Amazon, 2 pack for $16.

And here is the same lantern on alibaba, $2.27 each (minimum 72 piece order).

u/gerald1 · 2 pointsr/Filmmakers

The lights in that kit are compact fluros which typically give awful shades of green and magenta in your shot. It is much better to use Incandescent light bulbs (the ones with a little filament that lights up).

I'd suggest making some of your own lights using these parts:

and then wiring in your own small dimmer so you can change the levels of the light

Something like that but obviously it needs a box to protect it... or get an inline dimmer.

This should work out to be cheap, give you better control and nicer colours.

Don't bother with all that cheap shit. It will break in no time and you'll be back at square one.

The reason an Arri tungsten light costs so much is because they will last you decades of being thrown around.

u/kaeroku · 2 pointsr/flashlight

Your battery database is about to save my life. I just found out that due to transpo restrictions, Amazon can't sell 18650 batteries anymore, which makes stocking a pair for my new flashlight difficult. I have a set of four I keep specifically for an older Nitecore I bought for night-hiking in extreme environments, but for obvious reasons do not wish to mix-and-match.

I never expected to run into problems sourcing batteries, and your database is great at providing alternative options. Previously, it was fine to research a brand and then take advantage of Amazon's discounts to hunt for sales, now I'll just have to suck it up, I guess.

Thanks for posting this!!

u/mcfarlie6996 · 2 pointsr/flashlight

While it's a little over your budget after the 20% coupon. I'd recommend the Fenix E30R from with the code MEMBER2019. Has built-in charging and includes a battery.

Something in your budget would be the Skilhunt M200. This has built-in charging but you'd have to buy a battery for it.

I agree with the others. There's no good focusable light in such a small size. Especially with a high output.

u/CameronMcCasland · 2 pointsr/Filmmakers

Zoom isnt a bad investment, but you might be right. Honestly, don't go gear nuts. Even with the advice i gave above which i think is a way to spend two grand thats not what id do. Id use what I already owned and find some other people and beg borrow and steal as much as i could. Spend that 2 grand on a actual movie, and try and put every dollar on the screen.

I totally get the concept of wanting to have gear for multiple shoots. But I think you will learn a lot from just jumping right in. Shoot a short for 50 bucks with your friends over a weekend. then shoot another for a hundred bucks, and build on that. After that use all you learned with the rest of the dough to make something longer. I know it sounds crazy, but you can do it if you budget and write the script around things you already own and have access to.

More than anything a project you believe in will last longer than any piece of gear.

But if you are dying to buy something start with some simple paper lanterns mixed with a reflector you can get some good looking stuff, great soft light, and you learn some basic lighting skills. You will still need a few stands. But you can get away with a lot with these because they are light. Use practical lamps and natural light to fill out your scenes.

30 day lantern: $37. Reported really does run for 30 days continually on low (29 lumens) and runs for 32 hours on high (300 lumens). Uses 3 D cells.

The Princetec AMP 1L is a compact option. $15 or so... it's technically a flashlight, but get one with the diffuser cone (they're sold with or witout one for the same price). It gives you 70 hours on 45 lumens and fits in your pocket. It's also waterproof to 100M so you can carabiner it to gear too and forget about it until you need it. Uses 2 AAA cells.

u/CaptRon25 · 1 pointr/flashlight

I bought some of the Fenix CL25R Clones. The only problem with them is the cool white light. But you can fix that with Lee Filters. This is the one I used.

Amazon has them like this under many names, but all are the same thing. I picked up all of mine under 10 bucks each, and they all included a crap battery which I discarded and bought protected NCR18650GA's.

Hope that helps

u/couchsleep · 1 pointr/plants

Without knowing too many particulars (like how often you water) I'd say the main culprit here looks to be overwatering, although sunlight definitely sounds like a factor as well. Almost all of these are desert plants, and should be allowed to dry out between watering.

For cactus #11, was it steadily growing sideways towards a light source, or did it just seem to suddenly collapse? It doesn't look to have typical yellowing that you see on rotting cactus, but if it collapsed rather suddenly it's most likely due to overwatering. Not sure if it's salvageable, perhaps someone else has advice.

The hawthornia (zebra plant) and jade also look to be overwatered. Are the yellow leaves on the jade mushy feeling? I would repot them both, checking for mushy roots. If the jade has root rot, you may be best off propagating a few new ones from healthy leaves (it's super easy and rewarding :) ). I'd suggest repotting in terracotta pots. They might not be as visually appealing as some decorative pots, but the clay will help to pull out extra moisture from the soil.

I think you're correct about the overwatering of the fiddle leaf fig as well, but as long as the woody stalks aren't withered it should recover. I don't have much experience with them, but I know it can be a long process (1 yr+) to see healthy new growth.

If you're concerned about a lack of light, I would also suggest picking up a full spectrum light bulb and a cheap pendant lamp, and putting your plants under it. While it's not a perfect replacement for natural sunlight, I got one for my jade tree a while back and it seems to help.

It's hard to see, but it looks like your small air plant may have bloomed, is that right? I believe most air plants only bloom once in their life, and you'll want to cut the dead bloom off at its base to promote potential pups sprouting. Your large air plant is lovely by the way, I'm a bit envious. :)

I'm a pretty casual/novice plant lover, but I figured I'd try to steer you in (hopefully) the right direction, since there hasn't been any other advice given. Best of luck to you!

I mean it is a generator. With a quiet one will come more cost. If your just looking for a way to emergency charge phone and batteries look at a crank charger or sometimes called a dynamo. Most will be integrated with a radio or flashlight already or look at goalzero solar charger products. Some of there basic sets can charge a tablet and they only cost about a hundred bucks. If your looking for good lights look at the 30/60 day light, extra batteries will be easy to carry than a generator + gas.

You'll need to list a budget if you want valuable advice. Like most camping gear - these items can go for a wide range of prices / quality. You generally get what you pay for - so the bigger budget the better quality.

Are you shopping in the USA or abroad? Online or local shops? Different areas have different brands available.

When / where will you do the majority of your camping? Don't need to list the specific parks - but a general idea of the temps and terrain you'll be using this equipment would be idea. Warm beaches or snowy mountains, Windy plains or thick forests, etc.

You said car / base style camping - that's a valuable distinction. Backpacking / wilderness style gear would be very different.


Tent - 4-person tent for 2 people is best for car camping, you could even go higher for more room/comfort.

Stove - a 2-burner propane stove would be ideal. Coleman brand is classic.

Lantern - a propane lantern is old-school, but bright / effective. I'd probably go with a battery powered option though, easier to deal with.

cookware - tons of options here. You could start by going to your local Thrift Store. Get the basics, they even have cast iron there often. Then get a plastic tub to store it all in - as your kitchen kit grows it will be valuable to store it all together for transport.



Without knowing the answers to my above questions, I'll throw out some basic gear options for you to check out:

I just searched "smallest microcontroller with bluetooth" and came up with this: though its not much smaller than the smallest off-the-shelf ESP32 (

You could probably find schematics of both of those boards online that you could use to rearrange the boards on a custom PCB that better matches the form factor of a flashlight and then have a couple boards made (doesn't seem unreasonable for a engineering degree senior design project). I don't think either board would fit inside a standard flashlight (even a 4D mag light) unless you used one of those lantern style flashlights. That one looks like it would have all kinds of space.

u/soundman1024 · 1 pointr/colorists

This is going to be very difficult to achieve with a T2i. Much of the detail is in the shadows, which the T2i doesn't capture very well.

Start with some ND on the windows. I'd start with knocking them back 2 stops, but you'll likely need more. After that add some fill light from something soft at camera right. Maybe 3x china balls in a line to keep the cost down. I'd love a 4-bank here, but the paper lanterns are a very affordable way to get some soft light. Since you're shooting agains the sun be sure to put daylight balanced lights in them. 2700-3200k warm lights are going to give you color balance woes.

The goal with the lighting is to try to bring the dynamic range into something a T2i can record. The difference from dark to light here is the problem. Cameras that shoot raw or log formats are more equipped for this shot.


As for color, the people in this sub will have better advice. I'm not really a color person, but I'll take a crack and hopefully someone can tell you what I'm wrong about.

For starters desaturate the shit out of what you shot. This starts with art direction, continues into set design, and finally ends in post. You can only be as successful as what the camera is allowed to record.

Next you need to lift the pedestal. The blacks should be pretty milky. This is something the T2i will struggle to do elegantly as its encoder doesn't give you a lot of shadow detail. Pull up the bottom point of a curves layer up 15ish percent. After that add a point a little bit up the line and lift that even more. Work the curves after that to get toning that you like. It doesn't have to be final, but try to get it much of the way there. What you really need will vary based on your shot.

Next I believe (could be my laptop screen leading me astray) the shadows have a slight purple tint. Add that with a 3-way. Use the same 3-way to push your midtones towards green. Also push your highlights towards the same green. You might push the highlights slightly more towards yellow or orange than you did the mids. The midtones are pushing further on the color wheels, so make sure that point is further from the center of the wheel than the highlights point is. Note that you'll probably need to adjust the pivot point for the shadows-to-midtones transition and work the curves from above to get that changeover happening where you like it.

Add a soft dark correction to the room using some sort of soft mask to target that area more specifically. If the camera moves a lot your mask is going to need to change to compensate.

After that get some grain going on. Add a final curves to get the toning you want to finish with.


Now hopefully I've said something wrong along the way. Nothing brings out good advice like giving bad advice. :-)

That ThorFire lantern looks really interesting.

I carry a 100g/3.5oz Anker power bank that stores a full charge for my cell phone in an emergency. My GPS (eTrex 10) will also run off it if needed.

Depending on your needs this could save you about an ounce. I've read of some long distance people using larger banks because solar and cranks were either too inefficient or were not practical when used in the field. Taking too long, too much effort, or simply didn't work as expected.

Well, I think I found the bulbs they use. They are LED ones, so heat isn't an issue. You can use a cord like this, unless you can find a thicker one (I didn't look too hard).

As for knitting around the cord, I think the project is knitted and then slid onto the cord. I guess you could assemble it as you go around the cord, but that seems more difficult.

Why not just use some of these? All you'd need to do is blow them up and tie them to something that would hold them underwater. They should last plenty long enough for the party and you could easily retrieve them after.

Here's the link to the bulb:

I ordered that and put it into one of these:

The larger light I'm honestly not sure. After we legalized I bought it as part of this kit a hydro store in Maryland had put together, and just came in a unmarked box as part of a larger wholesale shipment I imagine.

The entire kit was like $325 or something and I remember the light being a little less than half of that, so it's likely comparable to other $150 or so full spectrum LED's, you can also control whether it's just blue/red/or both.

Whoa, talk about cutting it close.

$20 or $30 is a tight budget for a quality AA light.

  1. Eveready LED floating lantern
    • Runs on two or four D-cell batteries
    • Decent, long run time, cheap enough to be disposable
    • $10 and Prime-eligble
  2. Maglite LED flashlight
    • Prime-eligble
    • $25
    • 2 D-cell batteries
  3. Maglite mini-Mag AAA
    • $15
    • Prime-eligble
    • These are bright, but don't last for a long time, which might be critical for you.

      On your budget, and given the short suspense, any light you have will be better than none. I'd recommend buying one or two cheap ones, using the same battery type, buy several packs of batteries, and then once the storm passes, spend some time reassessing your lighting needs. And budget for buying quality lights of some kind.
