"Oh, that's not good."

How do you get Stanford to take a lunch break? You kill the power to the entire campus at 11:30 a.m.

PG&E says there was a "foreign object" in contact with the transmission lines. It killed power to Menlo Park, Atherton, and Stanford. The hospital and the mall are unaffected because they're on a different grid.

I'm working in the touchdown space in Forsythe. Forsythe is powered by huge diesel generators. Wheeeeeeeee!
