Everything EAST of the downtown core is DARK and DISCONECTED.
I came into work in a 10 story building here in the Bellevue core - so I could journal about not having power and internet at my home.
GO GEEK GO!
Power was out last night for a couple hours, came back, and spent the evening flickering, with almost constant lightning, until about 11pm.
Hubby and I were watching the storm out the window, keeping and eye on some major trees nearby, when the whole sky to the west lit up from the ground up.
It was this bright, intense green blue, and it was acompanied by a very audible FFZZZZZZZZTTTTTT! and you could feel the electrical surge. Power went off, and came back on sometime early morning.
I haven't been able to find what happened, possibly a lightning or tree strike on a power station. Was scary though.
Power is out Kirkland on 85th and down into Redmond Way, along with quite a few trees down on the roads.
I have also (Once again thank you cingular) lost my phone reception in this area (willows rd/bella botega)
Luckily our generator only lasts so long so I can do what I need to do and get out.
Surprisingly the power never went out at all in our Crown Hill neighborhood.
I just wanted to let everyone know that I have power, internet, and my cell phone works. My trash can was missing for a little bit, but it was located early this morning accross the street.
I thank you for your concern.
I know this is a long shot but did any of you happen to find a black iPod Nano in a red leather case this afternoon. It was lost between Blanchard and Lenora on 5th. There is a reward for its return.
