Were you effected? What do you remember?

We were at the aquarium with the kids. My first thought was of a fire.. Peter first thought of terrorism.

It was actually a lot of fun. Most of the ride home was on the expressway, so the lack of traffic lights didn't matter. When we did hit a light, there were already 3 guys directing traffic. We threw some food on the BBQ and went for a swim-- it was an incredibly muggy night. We always have flashlights around, so we put one in the bathroom and just left it on. We put Brian and our 16 year old visiting niece on the sofa bed, and brought Julia's toddler bed down to the living room; Kira went into the playpen. It was a little crowded in there, but that added to the fun. Through the open windows we could hear people talking long into the night.

We finally got power at about 3pm the next day.

No, we were not affected, since we live on the west coast. I remember a similar blackout here in southern California about 8 or so years ago. That was a lot of fun, too, LOL.

I was very lucky. In northern Ohio, the power was out. I missed it by like 40 miles....

It sucked
We had just moved to NY (aug 1st) and it had taken them until Aug 12 or 13 just to get our cable/roadrunner hooked up (still had no phone but cells ). I was so TICKED!!! We didn't even have our cable & internet for a full 48hrs and it was gone again (after having gone without it for almost a month btw moving from AL to NY and living out of hotels)

We were lucky though, the power went out around 2-3pm it was back on by 8pm

I remember. Josh was 6 weeks old, and it was my brothers birthday. The power wnet out, and my first thought was, "Well, I guess we're going to Wendy's for dinner." But the entire area was out, so that didn't work. We spent lots of time outside with our neighbors talking while the kids played. We joked that it should happen more often - we actually got to know one another!
