Some Try to Cash in on Blackout Souvenirs
It didn't take long for some savvy folks to dream up merchandising the blackout of 2003.
After power returned to Michigan customers, Steven E. Harris, of Warren, Mich., spent 16 hours Saturday writing an e-book on the blackout. "Surviving the Blackout of 2003" sells for $9.95 on his Web site Knowledgepublications.com.
"On Saturday, when things were coming back, all my friends and myself, we knew we dodged a bullet," said Harris, who is a member of the local civilian emergency response team. "We were looking at each other, (saying) `This is kindergarten, people... why don't you try doing this for a week?'"
Harris' book, which he plans to eventually make available at no charge, warns people that it could have been much worse and offers advice on preparing for and handling future blackouts. The advise ranges from the types of clothing to have in an emergency to how to use the bathroom without water.
