Writer's Block: Lights Out

All it takes is a blackout to realize how much we rely on electricity. What's your most memorable story from a power outage?

The great Eastern Seaboard blackout of 1965. Even though I was living in Manhattan, I was in Connecticut at the time, and we thought it was just a local event. The next day, however, as the magnitude of the outage became generally known through news broadcasts and such, the stories I heard - including the fact that it was caused by a single human error - made it just as memorable as if I had been in the city myself.
