Try putting a CFL in a fixture outside, next to your front door.  When it's cold, it doesn't put out much light at all.

I haven't have one last 2 years yet - my last one lasted 3 weeks.  Guess what, R30-R40 shaped bulbs in ceiling fixtures, side by side on the same circuit, the CFLs last LESS time than the incandescent bulbs on the same fixture - I often HAVE to use CFLs, because it's all the local store stocks - I use them till I can get a bunch of incandescents in, and when they burn out, I put incandescents in
