I was fortunate enough to ride out the entire blackout of ‘03 from the comfortable confines of home – Fairfield County, Connecticut. My girlfriend usually has an easy counter-commute home, but the lack of signals turned it into a slow slog. We had some peanut butter sandwiches for dinner with fresh strawberries for dessert. Then after reading by battery powered lantern for a bit we called it a night.
Our power came back around 4 or 5 am, but there are a lot of people in southwestern CT who are still without power. Looks like it’s going to be a lazy day.
