    Power outage in Ames

    Power went out about an hour ago. Sitting in Buchanan Hall in the dark. I just got internet access back, but running on my laptop battery with no charge.

    Traffic lights are out at the intersection of Lincoln Way & Ash Ave and Lincoln Way & Union Drive.

    Taking a **** in a bathroom in the complete dark appears to be an adventure.

    Anyone else know of anyone sitting in the dark right now?

    I just turned off all my lights, but other than that, no I don't.

    It was Ash to Squaw Creek and Lincoln Way to Highway 30. Caused by a burning power pole on Beach Ave by Reiman Gardens.

    Re: Power outage in Ames

    About witnessed 2 different accidents from idiots just driving straight on through an intersection without traffic lights.



    “One day we’ll be in here celebrating a Big 12 championship,” Rhoads said. “That I can promise you.”

    "I hope to coach here until I retire," Hoiberg said.

    It is a scary thought about how many are not aware when traffic lights go out to treat the intersection as a 4-way stop.
