We had the same situation up here in New Jersey with a couple of major storms about a decade ago. It truly sucks. When the power goes out like that, you get this feeling of complete helplessness because so much of our everyday lives depend on electricity. You wonder how people lived in the days before electricity.
After those major storms, the state pressed the power companies to embark on an aggressive tree-trimming program. Contractors went around cutting down all branches that could fall and take out power lines. That seemed to help a lot.
The only real answer is underground power lines, but that apparently is so costly neither the government nor the power companies want to go there.
