From Aug. 14, 2003, here is news about the incredible, widespread, and historic blackout that affected parts of the Northeastern US. and southern Canada. The blackout affected 45 million Americans and 10 million Canadians!! I had a friend in Florida tape the news for a couple of days, since, having no power, I couldn't....so here it is!! This is part 1 of 5, with news from NBC and Brian Williams. I distinctly remember where I was when the lights went out at about 4:15 PM that day...sitting with my wife in a realty office, going over paperwork trying to buy a house...the one we bought that Fall, and that we're still in!! It took us 2 hours to get home that day, without any traffic lights...nomally a 20-minute drive!
