    Blackberry. I knew when posting it may be a longshot since most of my audience wouldn't be able to respond if they had no power. But it was worth a shot.

    Re: anyone else in the dark?

    my lights have flickered 3 or 4 times since about 9:30. oddly enough, my microwave and alarm clocks are still on the right time and my TV hasn't turned off once, but my printer has restarted every time.

    And also thank goodness we were able to bail out enough water in the sump pump pit that it didn't flood our basement. We finished wrapping some present for this weekend by flashlight.
