Damn huge power outage.
    #1819954 - 08/16/03 03:57 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I got my power back... I got my power back. Suckersss....

Almost 2 days with no power is kind of fun! I enjoyed it...

About about the rest of you Torontarians, and New Yorkers? Well... everyone across the eastern seaboard, acctually.

Neat, huh?

2 days huh? Wierd.

I wish it would of happened everywhere. People need those wake up calls now and then. So did they ever track down the source of this?

People should never be without power. A person without power is not a person at all, but an animal. :wink:

A transformer was struck over here about a week ago, and the power went out for a couple of hours. I was watching Dark City on TBS. Having no electricity was exciting for a while, and then I went to bed. It was around midnight when the power failed, so it was nice and dark for once.

A couple of days would just be annoying, I think. Throwing out a bunch of groceries would suck.

Yes, for once you could see more than a dozen stars in the city. I hate the city, I gotta get away to the country. This just felt like a taste of the future to me. How long can we honestly sustain all the power we use. So much is wasted loud hokey shit (ever walked down fox hill, niagara falls?) and neon signs that are getting bigger and bigger. Imagine if the power hadn't come back on for a week. It would be complete chaos. When the big cities fall they are going to fall hard. I've come to that conclusion and i'm looking forward to starting my own community far far away in the country.

The stars were amazing on Thursday night... We turned it into a big
party for the kids. Candles all over the place. NYC was much more peaceful than the last blackout in '77

We got our power back about 7 AM Friday

Just a little nervous from the fall.

Just have a few drinks.........thats how I got a few hours of sleep. I think all the big cities should shut their lights in the down town areas a few times a year just so the residents can enjoy the stars. Has anyone checked out NOAA.COM or NOAA.ORG, the pics were simply incredible

I remember the power being out for like 3 hours in the city once. It was fall, like halloween. 2 days would've been awesome I think. Assuming you are stocked up on peanut butter and jelly.
