latest word (on cnn.com) is that the niagara-mohawk grid (upstate NY and
parts of canada) overloaded and went down.

i lost power here twice over a period of about 15 minutes (here being on
NYSEG, east of Albany NY, which is joined to Ni-Mo at the hip.) it's back
up, but i suspect it'll be shaky for a while.

all the burning transformers, etc., are all probably side effects of the
major power outage.
