Power went out at bedtime? Sure it was major inconvenience.

Especially if you make no preparations to take care of yourself and your family should the need arise and expect the government and its agencies to take care of you in an emergency. It is so difficult to prepare, buy some flashlights, water, blankets, food and such.

Exactly!!! Also, seriously it is 10:30 at night. Go to bed early one night and chances are power is on by morning. What is the big deal? Feel like sometimes we as a nation are just a bunch of whinny crybabies.
