“Hi those ... accually come through considering that some of the cell towers are down as well. We're having a bit of a nasty windstorm here in Seattle with power out EVERYWHERE... or all sorts of places. Our house isn't actually without power, but all the stoplights *around* our house are without power. I hadn't quite appreciated the degree to which stoplights really do things, when, until you have to treat them as four-way stops. So traffic isn't going *anywhere* and it's just a bit frustrating.
