Actually, Mayor Blumberg just told CNN that the smoke being seen at the
ConEd plant is normal for this situation.  It is also being reported that
this whole thing started in Ottawa, or an overload of the Niagra-Mowhak
power grid.

I just got off the phone with an old boss of mine.  ;-)  It would appear
that there is a large fire at a ConEd plant that has now caused a
cascading power outage in the Northeast.  Some more plants may have
tripped offline because of the load they absorbed from the loss of the
other plant.

If I get more information, I'll post.
