Impressive windstorm. Estimated one million people without power in the Puget Sound area at the peak. Power is still not back for tens of thousands of people. By a stroke of luck, I got my power back today, which is a good thing, coz it's 36 degrees outside right now.

Here's a picture I took in my neighborhood.



Update 17 Dec 06 3:30p AFAIK, power is still out to a significant part of the MS campus, including the building that houses the servers that are of interest to my group. I couldn't be working even if I wanted to be. Which is just as well, because my main machine at home turned up dead -- at the moment, I'm guessing a bad power supply, but we'll see. Sheesh, what a mess.
