I was just hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. My neighborhood was without power for most of last week. During the first few days everyone just stayed in their homes, the streets were very empty and it was very eerie. Definitely not a good sign of anything. It was like life stopped.
I know obviously that a natural disaster and a terrorist takeover aren't the same thing, but I couldn't help but think of that shot in TDKR where the city blacks out for a bit there. Wow, my lights started flickering just as I was typing this post, no joke.
