Right after I posted earlier today, the power flickered for 20 minutes and then went out. It was completely insane, we were hearing reports from people as they streamed into Starbucks, that the power was out from Ottowa to NYC to Ohio, and we all assumed it was deliberately sabotaged. Who ever heard of half a country having a benign blackout?
I have power again in my old apartment so I'm spending my time here, but my new place is still w/o power as is most of the surrounding area. We also couldn't use our phones for much of the time, since everyone was trying to call people to find out what happened.
The news says it's not terrorists. Here's a newstory about what htey know so far. I'm still freaked out.
