Mud slides?  Fiber cuts?  What the heck?  All my west-coast lines went
splat a while ago...

Got confirmation from my Sprint service manager that there's a fairly
major cut.  I quote, 

        "Currently, Sprint has been impacted by a major network event
(fiber cut) on the West Coast. This fiber cut has impacted both
data and voice services. I will provide updates ASAP...."  

This was followed up about 8 minutes later with, "The fiber cut occurred
outside of Phoenix. The fiber techs should have arrive at 4pm CT."

Since $employer uses Sprint exclusively for WAN and voice services, I've
lost everything in Arizona and California.  I've also noticed spotty
service in Westminster, CO.

Good times.
