I'm shocked they don't have redundancy to deal with a transformer failure in a place like Manhattan.

Calgary got hit by an Enmax cable failure that took our the west end of the core a few years back, but that's a totally different thing.

There was some great footage this morning of people stepping up to help control intersections and walking around with flash lights and water to make sure their neighbors were ok.



When the lights came on the city cheered.


Things like that are cool to me.

What a weird coincidence to this power outage as it happened on the 42nd anniversary of the 1977 New York City blackout.

The major difference between the two blackouts, the first one had arson and looting.
