I think we all would like to read your experiences after the lights went out. What was it like, did you suffer any damage, how bad was it and what will you do differently to prepare for a possible other. For those of us that didnt experience this first hand, but live near the coast, what advice would you give us to prepare? Seems gas was an issue, along with the need for a generator.. What else? We hope things are getting better for you all and if there is anything we can do to help you, post it.
