Power outage darkens campus

This morning the campus lost power from about 9:30 10:50, after a power line near the Recycling Center came down in the windy weather.

Power and internet came back on just before 11:00, and classes will proceed as usual.  Everything came back together smoothly, although the emergency notification didn’t seem to kick in until shortly before power was restored. (I didn’t get a call at all, and didn’t know the notification system was working until after checking my email at 11:00.)

Unfortunately, restored power means no more romantic candlelight breakfast in Proctor and no more “I couldn’t print my paper because the power was out” justifications.
