Hello all. This has been a rocky week. Monday evening at about 7pm a severe storm with micro-bursts and hurricane force winds came blowing through the nest in Missoula. Initial estimates were that 18,000 people were without power. This ranged from Darby, MT to Polson, MT. That is 130 miles long. The office penguins waited for the storm to pass then grabbed the chainsaw to help the neighbors cut there way out. No one was injured in the neighborhood just a real mess.
By 11am Tuesday there was still no power. Lots of the neighborhoods around the nest had power restored but not the nest itself. With freezers thawing and the support requests pouring in the office penguins scrambled. Some packed the food from the freezer and the Head Guin grabbed the server and launched to an alternate location.
As of 10p Tuesday there is still no response from the FSD networks. The assumption is that power still has not been restored. Estimates are Wednesday or Thursday because of the scope of damage.
That said the alternate location is up and running and no further interruption in FSD services are expected.
