  •  When Sandy hit (13+ / 0-)

    we lost power for about a week and a half.  We're in N.E. Ohio and they couldn't clear the trees fast enough for the Canadian power trucks to restore the lines.  (No, I'm NOT kidding. A lot of people here were massively pissed that no one paid attention to the size of the storm and who would be affected.)  Lost food, refigerated meds, most unhappy.

    Before that, We lost power for about four days in 2003-ish.  That's when Hon. #2 Daughter took a clay flower pot and built a charcoal grill with it.  We didn't lose any food in the fridge at that time.

    BTW someone at one time gave me a t-shirt that read "Thank You ConED".  It commemorated the '65 blackout.  Don't think I  still have it.

    February is National Heart Month. I guess that explains the Valentine's Day decor, huh.
