#128 Hurricane Sandy Outage

I thought I'd do one last post before the generators die in the New York offices of Squarespace.  This morning I received an email from them saying that they can't get to the generators in the basement of the building the servers are stored in because they are under water.  Also, the water is causing the generators to fail. So, this blog and countless others will go dark until they can get power restored.  

Of course, the priority is to get power restored to as many residential areas as possible, especially with cold weather already there and more on the way.  I'd like to think this storm is one of those "once in a lifetime" events but something tells me there is more to come.  A cursory glance at climate statistics tells even the lay person that there are big changes happening right now. Whether you believe we helped climate change happen faster than normal or not is beside the point.  We all have to deal with storms like this now and there isn't a whole lot we can do about it when they happen.

So, I'll prepare some scintillating and droll blog posts so I can flood your RSS readers the minute the site goes back up. Of course, it might not go down, in which case I'll just put up the normal BS that I usually do.

Enjoy your week and stay safe if you're in the danger zone (I'm being serious but scenes from Top Gun still flash through my head when I say "danger zone". Shit. Did it again). 

Thanks for reading and I'll see you in the field.
