When the lights go down in the city...

Apparently power is down all over Pasadena. Walnut Center is working on emergency power, but many things aren't tapped into that power. Things like the electric toilets and sinks installed in all bathrooms. The only working manual toilet we have is in the first floor women's bathroom (I guess the men's one is broken).

So we don't have toilets, but our computers work so we have to stay. Go figure.

Update 1: Shortly after I posted this, the power returned. I'm going to go on a limb and guess that Engineering thought the crisis was solved, and pulled the computers from the generators. Sure enough, the grid went down again for 2 seconds or so, again wiping whatever people were working on that wasn't saved.
