Where were you during the 2003 blackout in the Northeastern U.S. and Canada? (please include city and state)
Ashland, OH
Tell your story:
I was working on the computer when the power went out. I about freaked out because I thought i had done something. After about the first few hours, i was getting nervous because i am so used to having t.v. and stuff. I didn't know what was going on with the power. We eventually lit some candels and went to bed. When i woke up, the power was finally on!
If you remember the blackouts of 1965 and/or 1977, how did your experience compare?
Sorry but i wasn't born and my paretns were just kids! LOL
In addition to saving your story to the archive, may we post it to the web? (yes/no)
