Last night the bulb in one of my lamps burned out. When I removed it, I found it was an old fluorescent bulb. I didn't have any LED bulbs in the closet but I did find another fluorescent with which to replace it, but my visit to the closet informed me that I needed to get a couple new LED bulbs as spares.
So off to the store I went today, and LED bulbs were on my list. A package of 4 wasn't ridiculously expensive, so that's what I bought.
I replaced the fluorescent bulb with an LED bulb, and then decided to check all the other lights in the house. I know most of them already have LED bulbs, but it couldn't hurt to check. I found a couple fluorescents and even an incandescent (over the stove), and by the time I got done I'd used up all 4 of the new bulbs and put a small fluorescent over the stove. And now I have a few fluorescent bulbs in the closet in case I ever need one. I even have a few incandescents in there!
I should retire in, at most, 7 years, and I'll move someplace less insane than California. I guess I can take all those LED bulbs out of the fixtures when I leave and replace them with the fluorescents and incandescents in the closet. Otherwise, what good are they?
The LED bulbs will probably burn out. They don't last nearly as long as promised.
