I'll be taking a lighter approach than the Hurricane with this look at Blackouts that have hit New York City and the Northeast over the years.
Not counting the smaller scale that still exists in some areas here, we have had Blackouts in 1965, 1977 and 2003.
I was a kid for the first one, November 9th, 1965, and it was fun.
For July 13th-14th 1977 I was with a girl, and it was romantic.
The one on August 14th 2003 just flat-out sucked, lol!
A sweltering Summer night with high humidity, and no way to get cool.
I'll begin with the first one in 1965, which happened at 5:27 in the afternoon.
So if you can, that is the recommended time to listen.
For the real experience, please have all electrical appliances shut off and pulled out of the wall...except for what you need to listen to this Musical Exploration Of Power Failures of course!
Let's Do Our Music in the Dark!
I'll leave a candle in the window for you, lol!
