I was stuck on the 9th floor of the office building where I worked...we managed to find a couple of flashlights and journey down the stairwell in the dark....then I enjoyed the 10 mile ride home that took nearly 2 hours...I was quite amused by the gas line fights that occured on Friday....not much looting here in Detroit, some flooding and sewage back-up though....

hey folks & thanks for the concern stentiki! the blackout wasn't w/out inconveniences (especially the heat!) but was actually a rather pleasant change of pace. all the windows of the buildings on our block were candlelight & i actually saw stars above manhattan. i had a heaping amount of free ice cream from a local restaurant (it was going to melt anyway). the crime rate for the city was lower than average during the blackout too! for the most part everyone i saw made the most of it & had fun.

aloha,
chris
