1. What part of SF?


I'm near Civic Center, our power is on, but I do hear a lot of helicopters outside.

4. You aren't too far. Have they said what the problem is?

These power outages always puzzle me.

8. Power outages today in NYC, L.A. and S.F.

Weird coincidences? Hard to say. Could also be a planned attack of some kind. We shall see.

11. Clearly all that 'alternative energy' has destabilized the electrical grid

Probably a flying wind turbine blade cut through some wires.

12. Servers down at work for both wife & I

We work for different companies in Atlanta and both of our systems are down. This brings work to a stand-still. Mine has been out since 4:30 pm (EST) yesterday and is still down. I think my employer's servers are housed in Chicago, not sure about wife's.

17. Stop lights out along the Gough Van Ness Franklin corridor. Everybody's actually driving very well.

Minding the "I go - you go" rule. Traffic is functioning well.

That is the most I want to say on it right now.
