While attempting to log in to the firewall at the office to turn on the new Internet service, the server room lights went out. I initially thought it was my fault for typing in the wrong password, then I realized the whole office lost power, then I looked outside and it was the whole block! Parking garage, street lights, other buildings...
Now PGE confirmed the outage http://www.portlandgeneral.com/safety_outages/outages/outage_updates/outage_detail.aspx?county=multnomah and estimates power will be back on in 2 hours. So much for that plan!
