    Ya! The whole North East it looks like. Watching the TV now and man there are a hell of a lot of people out on the streets. Hope the power doesn't go out here cuz it's 106 outside now. Too hot for me...

    Power outage, started at one NYC station, then the "domino" effect, down the line. With the Huge demand, AC on with the hot temp's.

    Same as in '65 kid's were listening to "it's been a hard day's night" [Beatle's} on 45's,and in '77 with the "disco craze" everyone on the lighted dance floor's, and now with NYC and the whole East Coast full of Puter's. [Fume's, Cumcrust, is'nt back there] lmao. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I got my power back at 12:30am and it was such a relief too. I went to sleep at 8:30pm because I had nothing to do without power. There had to be something wrong because it was not even that hot over here, I think it is going to be hotter today(Friday), so we'll see what happens.

    Damn...modern living sucks without electricity!
