I'm glad that so many NE FReepers have those new gas powered 'puters. Otherwise, we'd never have heard from them once the power went out!

Seattle OK so far.

Al Quaida said they would attack our "backbone". Could they have meant the power grid?

Farmington, MI would be bad... Farmington, NM would be worse.

Listen, I know I'm making jokes... but all of y'all effected, you have my prayers. Brownouts/Blackouts in summertime are bad bad bad.

There are some major disturbances in the eastern interconnection, due to the outages. Frequency rose on the system, indicating a large loss of load has been lost. It was felt in Tennessee, and by several utilities, though no outages are reported here. Fox says NYC, Detroit, Ottawa, and Toronto have taken the brunt of it. I'll talk to work again and see if I can get some updates on the situation.

From the spread of surge/outage, it's probably Quebec Hydro again. They're getting their revenge.

Yup...just heard about it on KTSA in San Antonio, saying that may be what is causing the problem.

Come to think of it, something similar happened on Halloween, 1938.

Anybody see a greenish streak in the area of Trenton, New Jersey? :-)

After 9-11, be careful how you say that.
