My parents lived in Northern VA at the time and were one of the few that
still had their power.  We just brought all our perishables up there.
Luckily, it happened over a weekend if I remember right, so by the time
we got back our power was back on.  I only wish I could afford a
generator - not having power sucks, and others were not as lucky as we
were!  Then there is affording the gas to power the generator... (back
