Has anyone heard of a big Power outage in the North east?
I just got a call from one of my tech's in the GBLX bldg in Newark, NJ
at 1085 raymond and they are telling him that they lost power! 
But I also got a call from AT&T in NY that they also lost Power! 

It looks like a rather large power outage -- we're in South Western
Ontario,
Canada, and power is out in Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph, Hespler, and
(I'm
pretty sure) London as well.  Can't say about Toronto.

latest word (on cnn.com) is that the niagara-mohawk grid (upstate NY and
parts of canada) overloaded and went down.

i lost power here twice over a period of about 15 minutes (here being on
NYSEG, east of Albany NY, which is joined to Ni-Mo at the hip.) it's back
up, but i suspect it'll be shaky for a while.

all the burning transformers, etc., are all probably side effects of the
major power outage.
