Monday Night Power Outage

Postby fluffy » Nov 6th, 2012, 7:04 am

There was a limited power outage last evening in an area roughly bordered by Main Street, Warren Ave, the Channel Parkway, Fairview and Duncan. It lasted about an hour. A firetruck went by my place, as did a hydro truck that appeared to be searching but I never did get any word on the reason for the outage. I drove around a bit, thinking maybe someone had taken out a power pole but no sign. Did anyone hear what caused it?

(There was a rumour that it was caused by a disturbance in the time/space continuum as hoot attempted to return to the stone age but this is as yet unconfirmed.)

Did you notice any Planes spraying or did H.A.A.R.P. turn on their array last night?

Our area, not far from there, must have been caught up in the time/space continuum because we did not suffer from this power outage. I do hope it is really Tuesday Nov. 6th real world time because I would not like to be living in the stone age. Thank you.

It also affected the industrial area around Government and Warren, but I haven't heard anything about the cause.
