The massive blackout that struck the northeast U.S. yesterday has effected al.com. Our site, like all of Advance Internet's news sites, is hosted in New Jersey. So, there's nothing we can do today at work. Word is that things should be up and running around 2 or 3 p.m., but we'll see.
As for the blackout, Canada and the U.S. are blaming each other. Hey, guys? Instead of worrying whose fault it was, why not dedicate your efforts to restoring power? At least for now. Point fingers tomorrow. I'm waiting for someone to give a nod to South Park with the headline "Blame Canada."
What a perfect day for Allison to have launched her blog Canadian Invasion.
