HomeHistoricalQuite a Week Carl November 7, 2012 Historical 2 Comments I had no power for eight days because of the hurricane, but TDMB is back. Did anything interesting happen in the news in the meantime? Soul of Wit And here I thought a couple of days without power in the summer was bad… …welcome back. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northeast_Blackout_of_2003 Carl Thanks. It was something. My dad passed away in March, and we sold his house in August. It’s about ten miles south of where I live. It caught fire during the hurricane and there is nothing left. Thankfully, the new owners apparently weren’t hurt, but it was quite a shock.
