It did affect me. I live in Virginia and this is the 2nd year in a row. Last years however, was much much worse. We were in the dark for a week and can you imagine having no power in the realm of a historic heat wave? We had no air conditioning and indeed, it got so dangerously hot we had to stay at a cooling shelter. This year my power was only out for one night so it wasent too bad. However, trees were uprooted and homes were destroyed. We were fortunate because instead of it being over 100 degrees with suffocating humidity, it was only 80! (making it much easier for the power companies to work outside) we didnt need this anyway... we already had Andrea and flooding to deal with on the east coast
