Power outage


#1

wtf was that.

what a tease…its like when the teacher is late at school, everyone is trying to figure out how long we have to stay before we can ditch without being admonished…sonofabitch.


#2

YA what the hell was that? Did like some bird smack into power station?

Duuude, my very very old UPS stayed on!

top - 14:40:56 up 83 days, 6:12, 1 user, load average: 0.09, 0.10, 0.09
Tasks: 71 total, 1 running, 70 sleeping, 0 stopped, 0 zombie
Cpu(s): 0.7% user, 0.3% system, 0.0% nice, 99.0% idle

menino’s uptime is saved.

There was a brief outage in Terrace and Kitimat as well. I wonder what happened??

It was lightning strikes on the power lines somewhere around Prince George.

The bird explodeing would have been cooler to see.


#8

Lightning hit a transformer near PG.

Yes, the point is that “how truely vulnerable we are up here” doesn’t apply.
