Blackout in Memphis

  /   Saturday August 30, 2003  

I sure appreciated this commentary in the New York Times. The blackout in the northeast made national news. Many news outlets didn’t even notice the outage in Memphis that left some people out of power for up to two weeks in the Memphis summer heat.

Indeed, my parents called some days after the initial storm to tell me that they saw on the news a story that said that they were so preoccupied with Iraq that they forgot to report on the story in Memphis. In any event, at least we got people from the area in to repair our power lines. The tree trimmers are still out there working on the fallen tree limbs and the trees, but the city is operating pretty much normally now.
