I am in Northern Virginia and have had no phone since Friday night. I have Verizon internet, phone, tv and cell phone, and it took a HUGE hit here! My internet did NOT go out but everything else did! Even my cell phone is intermittent, probably because everyone is using their cell phones as their home phones are out! Verizon even provides 911 service for some LARGE areas here and they are only SLOWLY coming back today! Sprint and Cox and Comcast cable were all out too. How about sending the next set of storms more NORTH?!!!

I'm glad you only lost the Internet connection. I'm in central Maryland (Laurel) and lost power for 27 hours (and I'm among the very lucky--about half a million in the area are still out since Friday night). I'm still wondering if the food in my refrigerator will kill me. I'll know pretty soon when I eat dinner...sigh.

I vote with Mikey that you need to keep these storms to yourself or send them elsewhere :)

Hey REMEMBER to document what you throw out as your power company is liable for it! They are the SOLE provider of electricity and therefore MUST keep it going or provide, usually dry ice, to keep the food from spoiling. I used to deliver dry ice and MANY times over the years the power companies would come and buy from us to give to their customers.

ps I am glad your power is back now!!!
