I went almost five days without power. However, once the power came back on the internet and phone service immediately followed.

The unpleasant surprise of the post-Sandy blackout was how useless cellphones turned out to be. For days, no one in my area could make a call or send a text regardless of cellphone provider.

I was not really affected from the storm other than colder than average temperatures.

I don't live near the area but my heart goes out to those who do. We almost moved into what was the path of the hurricane but things fell through at the last minute. I am hoping all our Edenites are safe and well.

IT did not bother me, I am too far away, but i did see posts on facebook from people showing the care of others, how some people were setting power strips out so people could charge cell phones to call family members..

I live in Texas, so we never had a drop of rain.

However, my boyfriend is still without power in NJ. This storm has been BRUTAL. We still have not heard from a member of the family in NY, and I am blaming the cell phone provider. I am not surprised to hear that some people have gone without power for days, for some it may be even more days before power is restored, but we're hoping it is sooner rather than later.

Very grateful I didn't get hit with anything to big on the East Coast. My power flickered once.

Our power went out for about 3 days because the wind blew down our transformer. A lot of people had similar issues and there were some downed poles so it took the electric company a while to get to our request.

Oddly enough, my lights just flickered. Though I can lose power with a slight breeze on the mountain I live on. I often lose power for no reason at all. But during the hurricane it just dimmed a couple of times. The couple of days after it kept turning of for a second and back on.

I live in Florida so I wasn't effected by the storm. It actually brought some beautiful weather here. It's crazy how such a bad storm can do that. But I definitely know the feeling of having no power because of a hurricane and my heart goes out to all who were effected!

I had power the whole time, but I was too South and not East enough for the storm.

I'm sorry to hear about your family and I do hope you hear from them soon and they are all safe

All we got was some hard winds and rain. But we live in Quebec so we're further away.
