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?

Force Majeure is by definition an "unavoidable" event. One avoids power failures by installing and maintaining backup power. If your backup runs out of diesel because the roads are blocked, then you probably did what was reasonable to expect
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.
