In real life, for a short while I lived out in the middle of absolutely nowhere, in Tyee, Alaska, on Admiralty Island.  At times, I was the only person there, with my nearest neighbors being about 15 miles away across Chatam Strait.  At other times, I shared a house with 14 people. 

I real life, I have one of these fixtures. https://www.lighting-gallery.net/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2350&pos=11&pid=144811

In my dream, I was running from some people I worked with who were literally trying to kill me.  I intrinsically knew what I was one of the only other people in the area, so although I could run and hide it would be hard to find help.  While in this frenzied state, I happened upon this abandoned shack/cabin in the woods with four poles, with the aforementioned fixtures, covered in lichen, with smashed refractors and broken bulbs.  The inside of the place had also been lit with three of such. 

Undoubtedly they would have been run off a small gas generator...LOL

We already had a ceiling fan that failed with sparks and smoke, how ironic! Now in my dreams I find neat stuff, no failing electric stuff anymore.
My parents told me one time a ceiling fan broke out of the electrical box and was hanging by the wire and flailing around the room. My mom was sleeping snd my dad turned the fan off and stopped the fan from moving.

When I was younger I used to have those "classic" dreams where I try to turn the lights in out house on, but instead they just stay extremely dim with reddish glow and everything becomes kinda creepy...
That can actually happen if your house is lit by Philips ALTOs! Grin Roll Eyes

That actually happened (This had to be around 1997 when I was only 13 years old) to me once in an old house where the lighting (incandescent lamps) and outlets were on the same breaker it was a hot night and the compressor on my old window AC failed to start the first try (it finally did start but a few seconds latter the 15A breaker tripped, so I had to go reset it and then wait three minutes to try and restart the AC)  the lights practically dimmed to nothing as the AC compressor sucked down the amps

I had a night horror dream today, regarding to Haifa massively replacing HPS lanterns to Vizulo Stroke Little Brother LED lanterns recently:


The dream began when I awakening early in the morning at my mother home, to see that lot of the Europhane Pilote T1 lanterns near my mother home with their 100W HPS lamps, cycling with their original Europhane/Sabir/Thorn anti-cycle ignitors (With them waiting some period before restriking the lamps as usual, but cycling non-stop). Than when the dawn appearing, suddenly the Europhane Pilote T1 lanterns with their arms, disappearing from the electricity poles, and Vizulo Stroke Little Brother LED lanterns appearing instead.

I have once again a horror dream related to the Vizulo Stroke Little Brother LED lanterns at Tchernichovsky street (Don't remember its content).

I had my first vivid lighting dream for the first time in a long time last night.  The dream began with me in the bonus room (the living room over the garage) at my grandparents' house.  I wanted to hide in the eave for some reason.  I might have been being searched for by someone.  My grandmother said that it's dark in the eave, so I can use a light that she gave me.

The light looked like a garage door motor with a candelabra based socket.  It had a 60 watt GE clear candelabra bulb in it, made in the Philippines.  The only problem was that this light device needed batteries.  It took four D-batteries and about 10 AA batteries, which I did not have.  I opened the door to the eave and noticed a pull-string.  This string turned on a light for the eave that I had never noticed before.  The bulb was a red etch 1980's vintage GE Miser, 95 watts.  I thought to myself how I never noticed that light in my grandparents' house before, and that it must be original with the house, built in the early 1990's.  

I went into the eave, shut the door behind me and noticed that the attic-like room is much larger than I remember it in real life.  I was standing on a 3 foot by 3 foot piece of plywood and surrounded by insulation on the ground.  I looked at the HVAC unit and noticed another pull-string light with the same red etch 95 watt bulb.  I heard voices (not my grandparents') outside the door and I suddenly became really nervous and decided to turn off the lights and be quiet.  I was hiding from someone.  My last thought before waking up was how long I would need to hide in this eave and what a small platform I was on.

I actually have one of these red etch lamps in my collection:
