Force Majeure is by definition an "unavoidable" event. One avoids power
In the opinion of folks on this list, did the recent power failure in
the northeast (started 8/14 and lasted several days in some places)
constitute a force majeure event?
by installing and maintaining backup power. If your backup runs out of
because the roads are blocked, then you probably did what was reasonable
from you and could claim that the effects were unavoidable.
However, if your generator failed because you last serviced it for the
Y2K hype and
forgot about it ever since, nearest mirror will be very useful for
figuring out the culprit.
