DCY2K.com: The Capital Area Preparedness Site
Welcome to DCY2K! Well, it came and went and not much happened. Good. New Year's was much more fun without power outages. ;^)
The only Y2K-related problems I heard about were minor. For instance, one fellow ouside Albany, N.Y., was a day late returning a video to a local store. The store's computer assessed him a late fee of over $92,000! The solution? The manager zeroed out the late fee and wished him a happy New Year. I guess Y2K worked out well for that guy.
The recent blizzard only reinforces my sagely advice - be prepared for anything. I was caught short of beer and liquor (dammit) but I had plenty of everything else. Some of the better-prepared folks farther south who were left without power from the storms were sitting pretty. Check out this article from the Charlotte Observer.
Since Y2K doesn't seem to be much of an issue anymore, I'll soon rework the site into more of a general preparedness resource.
Here are some of the links from previous updates:
Enjoy the snow!
