Power = out

Power went out here at Toad Woods just after 4:45pm Monday. The UPS for the net connection and computer equipment has also failed, despite making all the right sounds when the power went.

I plan to stay here tonight and assess status tomorrow. I'll go up to my neighbors' house if need be.

Home phone is still working. Calls there welcome. The 413 number only please. Cell reception on my 612 mobile number sucks and its battery power is limited.

Good news: Sandy's winds knocked down the part of the Tree of Damocles that earned it the honor of the name. Win

Good luck! I'm glad the wind took out the right part of your tree.

So UPS stands for Un-uninterruptable Power Supply?

Stay in, stay safe, tell your roof to hang on tight. Love ya, hon.

I will hold "power will return very soon" thoughts for you.

(Ironically our basement flooded last night. From our own plumbing no less, sigh. So all the flooding has been used up and you can't now)
(so there)

How did you post without power? Whistling into the phone?

If only I were that good a whistler.

Smartphone. Horrid signal here in Wales, so it was slow, but it did get me to the net.

As a suggestion...
The UPS may well be able to charge your phone even if it can't power your computer.
