The positive things that happened through the power outage
Original post made by Resident, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Feb 18, 2010
I saw neighbors chatting to each other, helping each other, people taking time to smell the roses and smiling.
There were kids playing outside, school crossing guards directing traffic, people checking on elderly neighbors, sharing camping stoves and getting prepared with lanterns.
The CANS emergency communication worked well and by all accounts the PAPD and PAFD worked amazingly.
If you heard or did anything positive, share it here. If you want to make constructive criticisms, go to one of the other threads.
