In The Dark!

Who else is with me! Cleveland is a Black-Out city, except for my department, which is still running off generator power. Damn news station, all the sales and management floors are black, why not the news room!

Its Graphics this and maps that.....from Detroit, to NYC, to Ottawa and Toronto....

Here's a toast to all who still have A/C!

Cleveland, Detroit, NYC, Syracuse, Toronto...supposedly a failure of a main power grid in NYC that ended up tripping all the surrounding grids.

WNBC New York reported that federal authorities informed them that the substation on 14th street in NYC malfuctioned, causing a cascade that brought the system down.
