I'm located in Old Town Alexandria.  We experienced no power problems of any
sort during this time period.  We also co-lo in Herndon and had no
indications of any problems there either.

Was anyone else effected in Northern Virginia?  Other than a couple of
stories about AOL IM being down, I couldn't find any news coverage of
a major regional power outage in Northern Viriginia.  The only story
I found was an electrical fire at Dullas Town Center near the Gap store.

VEPCO customer service didn't know of any power outages.
