Re: Black out?

Yeah it's fubared, we got notification @ work of our cell sites getting taxed like mad in Manhattan. One of my boys lives up there I've been trying to get a hold of him for an hour for the birdseye report.

I spoke to my wife who works at the World Financial Center. She said everything was out, no busses, or trains. she was headed to the ferry terminal with about 10,000 other people. She told me to pick up the kid and wait for a call sometime tonight.

I'd try a hotel room first.

Re: Black out?

Man, I sure hope we don't have 3000 people die from this lack of power.






Seriously, it sucks and is a big inconvenience but us Americans always seem to live through it and come out stronger.

It does NOT seem to be terrorism. That is all.

Thats what I don't understand...why do people panic and head home and only add to the chaos. Its best to stay put in the office. We have back power, water and some snacks.

Re: Black out?

Its called UPS...Uninterrupted Power Supply. Or back up power generator in layman terms (I am getting cranky and sarcastic).

The online service was down for a while at my office. They started up the servers. And hence I have light, water, snacks and most importantly, I am online. Wish I had my Blade with me. I would have been home by now.
