Like two hours into the blackout - I saw a blind man with his cane talking on a cell phone: (i dont know how he had service, but he was talking in a cell phone.)
"Yeah, something has happened - a cop actually offered to get me a cab home?? I didn't take it - I can get home by myself."
A cop offered a blind man a cab ride home during the black out, and obviously failed to mention what was going on. weird.
