When I first spotted this PSA, I teared up a little. Yep, it’s that adorable. See for yourself.

Admittedly the YouTube video is a little dark. If you can’t make it out, there’s a dad sitting in a blanket fort with his young son, playing with shadow puppets and reading a story…all accompanied by a very nice battery-powered lantern.

Of course, the Red Cross suggests more than just two things to have on hand when your lights go out (and, apart from the cuteness of the PSA, I’m sure PGE would say the same).

Here’s our complete power outage list.
