Being from New England, I use events like that to
educate people to about about preparing for this type
of "soft" situation as oppose to a hard situation like
a nuke attack.

We had an ice storm back in Dec '08 that took out power
in many towns on both sides of the Massachusetts and New Hampshire
border. Some areas of NH were out for weeks thru Xmas and New Years.
I'm no longer the crazy guy with his "have cash, candles and can goods."

We will have a broader and longer outage.
