Writer's Block: Lights Out

All it takes is a blackout to realize how much we rely on electricity. What's your most memorable story from a power outage?
After Hurricane Charley hit in 2004, our power was out for a week, and our water was out for several days.  After a couple days of being in the sweltering, Florida heat with no air and no water, you start to feel pretty nasty.  I couldn't take a real shower, and our pool was out of commission because the screen enclosure had blown into it.  So, what's a girl to do?  Well, I waited for an afternoon rain storm, put on my bathing suit, grabbed my soap and shampoo, and took a rain water shower under the gutter spout.  Perhaps not the cleanest I've ever been, but I sure felt better!
