When I was a kid on Long Island, Hurricane Gloria. Although it may seem worse in hindsight, that's the only time I can remember actually having to prepare for a storm -- the power went off and we ended up sleeping in the kitchen.
We've had some nasty nor'easters in the area, but it's snow that causes more trouble than wind and rain.

What's the worst call you have ever seen made by a umpire/referee against your favorite sports team? Mine happened tonite when the Pirates/Braves game ended in the 19th inning with a safe-call at the plate by a umpire who apparently wanted to go home.
