I think I remember that... Puerto Rico was out of power for a long time. And one
of our (perhaps more embarrassing) presidents threw a roll of paper towels at a
reporter, or somebody.
Even in California I can't recall ever having lost power for months at a time.
At most we've only been out for over a week due to the snow knocking down power
lines. (It's not all sunshine and beaches in the Golden State... I live at a
high elevation where, when it snows, it tends to know a /lot/. And we usually
have to shovel it out by hand :S)
Hopefully you won't be stuck without power for too long. Do you have a
generator? Solar recharging units for any mobile devices, etc.?
