Oh, and a new time is open us. The hordes used twitter to broadcast which gas stations had fuel. There was a hash tag #njgas that directed thousands of people to these stations. That power could be used for good or evil

We had two major outages here in Conn recently—Irene (Sep of 2011) and a freak Oct snowstorm (also in 2011). Many places were without power for 8-10 days each, within a month’s time.

My town was out 8 days with Irene. We never lost power for the snowstorm. Our gas stations were *mobbed* because we were the most northern town in eastern Conn with power. Twitter, Facebook, emails, phone calls, whatever. We had people from all over the state getting gas at our local stations.

It never got out of hand like you describe, but it was eye-opening.
