Brief Power Outage

11/14/2007:

There was a minor power outage downtown Hoboken today. The Wiley building lost power, and both HPD and HFD briefly went on battery backup for their radios. I overheard that it may have been some PSE&G work going on that caused this, but am not sure at this moment.

Remember when the whole northeast went black? Now that really sucked!

When I got home that day I was happy to find that my building still had power. I had both AC’s going full blast.

Ahhhhhhh.

When I left my place this morning I smelled smoke in the air and actually did a double take around my building to see if anything was on fire. As I was walking past Sushi House on First Street I noticed they were jackhammering the hell out of something and the street was a cloud of dust and smoke. Maybe this was the cause???

[quote comment=”53550″]I was working the Mic at 96.1 Kiss FM in Pittsburgh on that day. We never lost power.

Awww yeah, from the city where the steel is hot and the women are not, it’s 96 – 1 KISS FM.[/quote]

sounds similar to my blackout adventures.

I was home, but after everybody realized what was going on a few of us that work for W_ _ _ -FM here (studio in Jersey City) all hit up some liquor stores to pick up some supplies, and then went to the studio to bask in the air conditioning that was on the emergency generator and had a blackout party 😈
