all of the necessities of modern life... gone. >> the power was out in this area for approximately 2 1/2 weeks. >> we were out of power for about four or five days. >> the basement flooded because the sump pumps went off. >> it was very hard to get food. it was hard to get gasoline. >> life changes drastically. >> without power, you're just kind of cut off from the world. >> without electric, you're at the mercy of mother nature. >> i do not want to be the victim of a powerless house. >> we're all aware of catastrophic storms that knock out power to millions, record snowfall that brings down trees and power lines, maybe even something as innocent as a squirrel knocking out a power substation. but no matter where we live, the nation's antiquated electrical grid affects us all. it's an aged and overloaded system that's due for a $2 trillion rescue. a rescue that nobody has plans to make.
