I'm only able to post this because we bought one of those battery/surge protector boxes and have cable internet with a laptop.
I have no idea when power will come back on, but the area of the blackout is huge. the Valley, Downtown, Santa Monica and many other communities are out, including traffic lights, which in LA is just plain bad.
By comparison, this is like saying an area from Kokomo to Indy to Bloomington is out, only with 10 times the people.
My batteries won't last long, so if you don't hear from me, it's because I'm "posting" on an old IBM typewriter.
Have Fun PD! See you in the dark ages!
