I just got my power back!!! Down town just got it! I really didn't mind the no power.. Seeing the streets totally dark and people walking around with flashlights on the streets just so you could see them. I liked that... But what I didn't like lol.. My building lost water pressure after a period of time! So at that point around midnight I wanted the blackout over. Can't say it wasn't an experience... I can bore my grandchildren with stories of the BlackOut OF 2003!! LOL!

XD Ah yes.. Telling the offsprings about the "BLACKOUT OF 2003"
Nothing wrong with a little exageration...
"Oh wait sonny! In 2003, when I was just a teenager we had a huge~ blackout! Why we didn't have power for weeks! And all the people were looting but oh-ho! You're Grandpa was fighting off the looters and Zombies off by the minute! And then the Eifel Tower fell down! Oh! And then I was wanted for $$60,000,00! And there we're insurance girls running after me? Huh? What'was your old gramps talking about again?"

>.< had to wait 30 mintues to get into rite aid >.<

8:30 am power comes back on. Yay.. Downside, my DTV only had crappy channels I never knew that exisited.
"Back in the Blackout of 2003, I went out in the street since everyone was partying. You should do the same if this happens to you."
Just thinking what I should tell grandchildren in the future. LOL

At the time, I was working and the entire movie theater shut itself down, the projectors burned holes in the films, which really sucked...and the people in the movies started to get reaaaaally angry at us and we had to kick them out (but give them refunds so they wouldn't bite our heads off >_>)
yadda yadda yadda...
then we sat around in the dark, ate stale popcorn, and drank water from the still-working water fountains...LOL
Over here in Long Island (SH), I didn't get power back until 2:30 AM o_O

Keep in mind though that anywhere we went it was up hill both ways back in the blackout of 2003...even though I hosted a spontaneus BBQ party thingy...
