Question Were you affected by the Blackout

This was a tough week for me. Not only did my service get cut off so I couldn't post, but then the 1-2 punch of a power outtage from outer space!

Boy was I mad

Well, after 24 hours I have power and found one of the tossaway Free AOL trials that cramp up the mail box. Now TF is happy

I haven't looked at the news and am not sure what areas are still in the dark, but I am that some of you guys have just reappeared after a day...

So were you affected

Re: Were you affected by the Blackout

I wasn't. I don't live in Northeast US and eastern Canada so yea.

I read that the majority of power has been restored...and everything will be back to normal by Sunday.

Well, all of NYC was out for about 20 hours, the outter boroughs a little longer.

Good thing I didn't have too much food in the fridge, so no problems there, although I wonder why the media keeps telling people to through out stuff because when I go to the bodega they are selling refrozen ice cream among other things. Hmmm.
