Come to think of it, it was probably more like 15 years ago.
We did a lot with electricity already back then.
However, heating and cooking was all done with gas (and still is for most households).
As said, I live in a rural area and only the island was hit with the outage.
Just drive over the bridge and there electricity again (a PITA if you live on the center of the island).
The whole island has, from the top of my head, three traffic lights and no trains.
We all went to bed pretty early though Laugh | :laugh:

We're talking about a failure of the main grid though.
I think stuff like water filtering has back-up generators for these kinds of scenarios, like our store had.
It wasn't the end of the world, but as you said, we had no light or ways of communication and many businesses were closed for two or three days.
Today it would be a bigger problem, although two days in this particular area probably still wouldn't be the end of the world (unless we get it on top of corona, of course).
Not that I'm willing to try Poke tongue | ;-P
