100,000 without power; National Guard called up

Gov. Patrick, looking like he just got off a plow, just informed us that the heavy, wet snow is snapping power lines all over the place.

Meanwhile, Amtrak is six feet under; no clue when service will be restored.

Apparently some trees fell on the overhead power lines in MA.

And didn't come on again until 12:30 this afternoon. It was down to 55 in the basement.
Cause was a faulty transformer though, not directly caused by snow/ downed branches.
