Thursday night, December 14, 2006, a powerful wind storm hammered the northwest (of the United States). When morning came, residents throughout the Pacific Northwest woke up to downed trees, no electricity, and (for many) major property damage. It was one of the worst storms western Washington had ever faced, with wind speeds in some areas reaching 70-100 mph. Utility companies like Puget Sound Energy, Seattle City Lights, and Tacoma Power had to call crews from out of state to help repair the significantly damaged power grid. Hundreds of cars were seen on the eastside (across Lake Washington from Seattle) waiting hours in long lines for gas. Flashlights, batteries, and generators were sold out at many hardware stores. Arguably, many Washingtonians were not prepared for such a storm.

My power (provided by PSE) was out for over a week and it got pretty cold and miserable. But I just kept thinking that if people in other countries and my ancestors lived their whole lives without power, I can manage a few days. Hope you enjoy my short amateur documentary of the "December Storm".
