The largest electrical blackout in U.S. history has left me temporarily stranded in Washington, until things get straightened out in New York City a bit. As far as I can tell, much of Michigan, including Ann Arbor, is without power, and Southeast Michigan is without water service.

In local news the University has announced they won’t be releasing their consumer confidence index until Tuesday due to the blackout, and the Chinese student accused of hacking the U-M system has been expelled.
