Blackout 2003 Anniversary

By John Ross Harvey

August 14 2003, around 4:10 pm Eastern
The Entire East Coast lost power
From Montreal down to Texas
From what I can remember
As I seem to have a knack for avoiding major catastrophes
I was already on highway home when this hit
I suddenly had no radio
Though my town was back up by 2am next morning
Most of Toronto was not for close to 3 days
It was a great night to BBQ
And one of the best steaks I ever cooked
What do you remember? Where were you when it hit?
