Today’s Power Outage

by @ 10:10 am. Filed under Registry Ops

Shortly before 11 a.m. today, electrical service in the entire neighborhood of the courthouse failed and everything came to an immediate stop here at the registry. Even though it was a sunny day, some areas of the building have little natural light so courthouse security ordered all non-employees out of the building for their own protection. Because this website (www.lowelldeeds.com) is hosted on a computer here, the website shut itself down when the power went off, so we were pretty much cut off from the outside world. It was tough to get additional information because the local radio station, WCAP 980 AM, which is just down the street, we also knocked off the air for the duration. Power came back on suddenly at about 12:30 p.m. and no data was lost. All of our equipment was quickly brought back online without further difficulty.
