Nothing like having your power go out 10 minutes after getting home from work. I was fortunate enough to not have much happen to me or mine during Sandy. The worst that happened was that I had no power for a week (and no water for a day). The other side of town was flooded. Since Sandy, my power has gone out about 4 or 5 times, always when I was home. Course, I'm home most of the time, so that's not hard.
