    For some reason in the evenings I often don't turn on lights when entering a room just to quickly grab something or to simply walk through to another. It's a weird habit. It all started with the rounded staircase between ground and first floor. I only use the dim lighting coming in from the evening sky.
    Maybe I'm doing it to train myself certain safe tracks to take in case of a power outage?

    Either way, today I bumped into a chair with two toes. Not pleasant, but oddly enough my inner collision warning signals went off a split second before impact.
    Guess it's starting to work.

    Anyone else who does that, and for what reason?

    I'm a ninja, I don't need lights.

    I used to do this, but I tripped and fell and it's better to use lights, I've found.

    Be sure you constantly ask 'Is anyone there? Hello?' as you walk in the dark.

    You should wear steel toed shoes until your spidey-sense is fully developed.

    I take great pleasure in moving through my house with no lights. If you don't know every inch of your residence well enough to navigate it blindly, I do not think it a very comfortable home.

    'Cause of light pollution it is never really pitch black here. If I wake up in the middle of the night, my eyes are adjusted to the dim light so I can see fine.

    Agreed. Last time we had really anything quite so dark around here was when we had that snow storm that knocked out all power around town for a week.

    Snow on the ground, reflecting the was heavenly.
