This story is a guy from New Jersey and how he got home. Read it to find out how those impacted personally by 9/11 responded to the blackout. It's very laid back.
Also, go to my blog The BlackOut in New York, probably from Sat. 16 August, and see the comment left by the woman who wrote the blog I linked to about the black out. It made me smile. “This is so cool!” I made my husband come read the email immediately. I live in Houston. She lives in New York. I'd never have thought she'd ever heard of my blog, much less read it. Blogging is wonderful.
