Here's the RFO I saw late last night:

During a planned generator test that was being performed by Westin 
building maintenance, a bad battery resulted in the inability of the 
back up system to hold  power during the transition from commercial 
power to generator power. This resulted in a service interruption 
that lasted approximately 7 minutes (22:00PT - 22:07PT).

Before the problem could be isolated, building management switched 
the power back from generator to commercial power resulting in 
another service interruption that lasted approximately 8 minutes 
(23:43PT - 23:51PT).

Still trying to find out what happened with XO.
