A lot of people from this site are from this area. Hopefully this will not be a problem for too long.

News is saying it could take up to 24 hours to get everything restored to full power. Thankfully it isn't winter tonight then.

My jaw hit the floor when I heard this. I mean, New York and surrounding areas alone has 14 million people! This could go down in history as one of the all time biggest fluke disasters.

Anyway, to all of our Canadian and American friends out east, hope we see you back here soon and with healthy herps and no rotten feeders. (Good luck with that Lisa!)

It already has! Unless, of course, the pentagon is lying, and it IS terrorism. It's already been dubbed the biggest power outage ever. Not that we've had power for that many years, but still.

I used to work in NYC and commute to Jersey. I'll bet all people in Jersey going into the city and vice versa are pulling their hair out. Pretty freaky stuff. I watched people walking over the bridges into Brooklyn by the thousands. The subways must be a real mess. I heard something on the radio about a lightning strike hitting a power plant. Not sure how true it is though. I hope anyone affected by this is ok.

That's just insane, eh? Man am I glad I don't live in Toronto anymore... lol... Kept wondering at work today why all the faxes that I tried to send to Ontario weren't working until I heard about the power outage...
