No Power!

I woke up this morning to discover that I had no power! No phones, no computer, no TV, no oven. But why? There was no storm and it's not even windy! Fortunately, I got power back relatively quickly. Once I did I looked online to find the cause:

There is a major outage affecting 46,000 to 50,000 customers. RG&E says static lines, which sit above a high voltage lines, fell and crossed the high voltage lines creating a short to the system. When this happens, a signal was sent back to the RG&E substation, which automatically shuts the power down.
