Captain, we don't have the power!

Downtown Washington had a major power outage this morning - it tied up the Metro subway system and traffic lights. The whole scene looked a little bit like Beirut in the summertime.

The area affected included the White House, but it didn't have a problem because it has a backup generator. A lot of other Federal buildings were out of action though.

Things seem to be getting back to normal now though.
