Remembering The Unforgettable Blackout Of 2003 That Left New York In Total Darkness
Depending on where you reside in our state, this weekend you may have seen anything from heavy rain to more lightning bolts than Zeus ever handled and loss of power. It seems almost unimaginable to think that so much time has already passed, but oddly enough this week marks 13 years since the epic Northeast Blackout of 2003. While nearly all of New York lost power, it was New York City that found itself in true total darkness.
