OMG what a day.
just before 8 in the morning, GIANT lightning storm!  OMG. 
8:12AM.  Power Fails...  NO!
I have been here for 25 years, and I have seen 1 long term outage, caused by a tree immediately across the street from the office.
Now I have seen 2.
6:38PM power resumes.
I am sorry, 10 hours without this website or the email.
I'll find a plan to try to avoid this in the future, 10 hours is just too long.
