You have to take a balanced approach to continuity planning.
Otherwise, you risk going bankrupt long before there is
any big catastrophe.
"risk analysis"

Also, I would say that expecting a terror act to knock
out a 65 square mile area is being a bit over pessimistic.
Pessimal pessimism at its optimal.
Who said "terrorism"?  Come on, people.  Let's not turn NANOG-L into an
RNC sounding board.

I seem to recall a *really big* power outage a few years back.  And does
the New England area ever have major snowstorms?  Each region has plenty
of inherent hazards, both natural and not.

Let's not limit our concerns to "the boogeyman is out to get us",
particularly when discussing "balance".
