I feel so bad for the folks in New York and New Jersey who remain without power. CNN did a segment showing an 70 year old woman haul water up 6 flights of stairs. I feel winded at about 5 flights, and I'm younger than she is.
We were out of power during the ice storm in 2008 for 12 days, but it felt like a month. Hopefully power will be restored soon and these folks can get back to their daily routines.
