On the one year anniversary of Sandy, we asked readers on our Facebook page how long they were without power and how they coped. Here's a few of the responses:
Mike Kontos: 9 days, but I didn't mind it
DeniseAnn Cole-Passarelli: 11 days...had to stay with family and friends, my house was too cold.
Li Vadmer: Was out for almost 3 weeks. Went to live with family. Moved 2x, first to my brothers, then to my moms. Then she lost power in the noreaster, and she moved here!
Laura Mead Rosenberg: 10 days... Too long...
Nina Lafemina: 8 days but had a generator
