The Blackout scared you? I guess if you didn't have any cash on you(and no way to get more) then I'd be bit worried but scared? Not in my hood at least. I enjoyed the Blackout emminesly as it was a great time for stargazing/shooting star spoting. I believe that was a wakeup call to alot of people as well, and already there is work being done to upgrade the system so this will not happen again(whatever it is that triggered it, I do not buy the "Tree fell on transformer, HV powerline story, its too "out there" for me.
