They did no to exactly fail the test. They found coping with an emergency can be an exercise in frustration. You can know what to do about almost everything that has happened but you May be stymied by conditions beyond your control. For example if you have baseboard hot water heating you know that in a Power outage water should be drained out of the pipes before the temperature drops below freezing. But if the Power company estimates that repairing broken lines might be Only a matter of hours or a Day one is inclined to wait. When the Power does no to come Back Day after Day and the temperature suddenly goes Down you May be caught with your pipes in a freeze. You May also know to keep your fireplace going but you May not Trust it if it has not been serviced recently.

But Many people were caught with woodpile hundreds of Yards from their houses at Points where they had sawed Down Trees. Some had to use crowbars and axes to dislodge ice Laden logs laboriously lug the logs Over the icy ground to their House and then try to dry them at the Hearth before using them. There were people who were fond of talking about the ice storm they had experienced 20 years before and How when they saw the storm approaching they had filled Many jars with drinking water and bathtubs with water for washing dishes cooking and Flushing and How they had made enormous stews so food could be reheated at the fireplace if necessary. After All the talk two decades later even As they watched ice build up heavily on the Trees and the lights Flicker they never thought about making such preparations this time. Many did no to run to stores either for the candles kerosene flashlights they knew might be needed. And when they did the stocks were depleted. Some Lucky types latched on to generators and these provided Power and Comfort but in at least one instance the family suffered More when the Power actually returned a the Generator was still on the Power rushed to it and All the electric wiring in the House burned out. People slept at their fireplaces and kept candles burning under sink pipes. Others complained that the cold eventually went right to their Bones no matter How Many knitted Caps scarves sweaters pants and stockings were worn with boots so husbands bustled children and wives to motels.
