I was at work when the blackout happened. After I saw that the traffic lights were out, I knew it was time to drink some beer. Gotta drink 'em before they get warm, ya know? It coulda been the end of the world for all I knew at the time. Passed out drunk in a nearby park with a couple of co-workers (no trains and no car - traffic was fucked anyway). Woke up around 2am and walked mad miles home in the surreal, pitch-black night drenched in sweat. My neighborhood didn't get it's power back for more than 24 hours after it initially went out.
