I have power here at work (i'd really like to leave today! quick, help Bob think of an excuse to leave!!!)
However, in Canada, officials reported a number of thefts and looting.
"There is serious looting going on" in parts of Ottawa, said Ottawa police chief Vince Bevan, adding there have been reports of break-ins, smashed windows and theft in the nation's capital.
Ontario declared a state of emergency after the power outage.
Looks like the Canuks are looting though

It is odd how people in Ottawa , no less, are looting. I've never been there myself but I thought the people of Ottawa were some of the nicest in Canada. Boy was that ever a kick in Canada's teeth. Oh wait most of us don't have teeth from all that hockey ;-)

A massive power overload like this? Get real.
There are so many possibilities. Overload unlikely. Power system is not third world.
