CNN is reporting a sizable power outage affecting New York City, 
Boston, Cleveland, Detroit, Toronto, and Ottawa.  The subways have 
stopped in Manhattan and folks are walking in the streets.  A 
transformer is on fire on 14th street.

I just spoke on the phone with a friend in Ann Arbor, and he confirmed 
the complete power outage there.
