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
Canada, and power is out in Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph, Hespler, and
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.
