The only lights I see are on Peterborg Pt. from the mcmansions that obviously have their own power systems whether it's solar or generator.

I have to wonder, "Now What?"

It was only on the North side (lights were on way across) for a little over an hour. If you're not back on then that's your little pocket again! It was very nice - I actually like not having a generator. Different cerebral input!

Nope. No gennies needed in Peterborg. Our power never went out.

I could see from my vantage point that Peterborg didn't lose power - the whole peninsula was lit up as usual, not just those "mcmansions". 😀 East of me was all lit up too. A minor disruption caused by an accident:

But surely posting about an outage a few minutes after it happens is a bit of overkill, no?
