As the darkness descends over the east...

I'm calling it the great blackout of '03. it feels kind of cool being able to say "Great _________ of '03", really -- makes it feel more like a new century finally.

Turn off your electrical devices and A/C if you're in the dark; it will help them get the power back up.

A public moblog has been set up for mobile snapshots of the blackout, despite the power outage.

Whatta block party. Kind of reminds you of the end of the video for "Everybody Hurts", doesn't it?! Everybody just got out and walked...
