I was on crutches from an injury in my backyard with 5-6 friends drinking beer and smoking alot of piff. Went to sleep then woke up at 4 am when power went back on. Maybe missed couple hours of tv.

stuck in traffic in Plainview; trying to get through rush hour with no traffic lights. A nightmare

At work, but when I got off went to my favorite bar and have drinks all by candlelight, it was a deja vue moment as I did the same thing during the 1977 blackout, and the 1965 blackout, do you see a pattern here? lol

At work. Then sent home. No interruptions of family time. Brought out all the candles and the family and I set up camp in the living room. Great memories!

Tough question; I'm in the dark on this one.
Just kidding. Spent it in an extra-extra-long rush hour home; I believe it was Old Country Rd..

I got home and killed the rest of the chilled vodka. It needed to die.
