I have to throw away a bunch of meat from my freezer, but other than that, I'm not terribly upset about the power outage. Unlike a lot of students, I still have water when my power goes out, so I can still shower, albeit in cold water. I'm well-stocked for emergencies with lots of canned food and sterno fuel. Yesterday I heated water for tea and canned beef stew (which with the addition of a little granulated garlic and white pepper, was actually pretty good). I spent most of the day reading by candlelight. It was actually kind of relaxing and felt like I had a day off.
Here's a few photos/videos of the damage:
