We had an extended outage today thanks to Xfinity/Comcast. On the up side, they finished their repair 30 minutes ahead of schedule, but it still took about 4 hours. I don't know if the high winds today had to do with it or not, but everything is working normally again.

Thanks for the update and the explanation. Glad to hear that it wasn't something that required a lot of work on your part. There was a major network outage in my neck of the woods, too; a fiber optic cable was cut in Birmingham, Alabama, USA, resulting in CATV and internet disruptions throughout central Alabama. I was fortunate in that services were disrupted at my home but not at work (Auburn University). Moreover, the eye of Hurricane/Tropical Storm Zeta did not pass over Auburn and consequently, we were spared widespread extended power outages and severe storm damage. Nonetheless, a number of my students were unable to virtually attend class or meetings. That's the third hurricane to hit Alabama this year - I am getting pretty tired of this.
