We were sent to the "shelter areas" (aka bathrooms) twice yesterday.
I'm embarrassed to say this, but my company bills itself as the global specialist in energy management. Yet, our network infrastructure does not have UPS backups (although we own one of the major names in UPS) and our lines in are not redundant. So we lost one phase of incoming power and that caused us to send app. 400 people home yesterday, and is keeping them from work today also.

Also, basements are a rarity here due to the entire mid-state area having rock so close to the surface...
