Blogmapping the Power Outage
With the help of the blogging community I'm attempting to map the timeline of the power outage by having bloggers (or anyone for that matter) submit by way of comments here what time their power went out during this huge blackout hitting the north east of North America.
Please submit the exact time, your location (city, state/province would be good enough) and if you have them, latitude/longitude. I'll see what I can do about compiling the results. Please only submit a time that has been reported by your UPS or other such indicator of when the power was lost. Also, unless your time is accurate and kept in sync with one of the Network Time Servers don't bother submitting. No sense in having unreliable data. I'm looking for times that are accurate to within a second or less.
Just submit your info with the comment feature on this post.
According to my UPS the power was lost here in Brampton, Ontario, Canada (just north of the Greater Toronto Area) at 4:10:58pm on Aug 14th.
