I, too, am a UConn alumnus. However I did manage to make it to the Storrs campus.

I remember that night of the balckout all too well. We lived in Attleboro, MA at the time. Our phone number was very similar to that of the local power company sowe received dozens of calls complaining about the power outage. Needless to say, my mother was very gracious to the folks calling. At one point she stopped telling them they'd dialed the wrong number and repeated the information we'd heard on my transistor radio - the blackout was widespread and the power company was doing all it could to restore service.

Your mother sounds like a wonderful lady.
