    Default For Those Thinking About Going Across Today

    Power is out in the whole of Upper Michigan. All stores are closed, gas stations are down. Could be a long time before things are restored. Apparently a transformer station caught fire, could be a long outage.

    Proceed over with caution.

    We went over at 5 and the whole world was shut down. Staff at a couple of different places told us it could be an extended period of time before power is restored, Apparently, only Brimley and Escanaba had power in the whole UP, because they have their own energy supply. Everything else is out, all the way to Wisconsin.

    Don't pay attention to stupidity around here. There were people stranded in Sault Michigan at 6pm, because they didn't have enough gas to get where they needed to go. They were hanging out at the gas station, waiting for the power to come back on.

    Maybe the gas I just paid for is really just water. And the eggs are just sci-fi chicken babies

    Once again, don't pay any attention to the stupidity around here. Nothing was open in Sault Michigan at 6pm. Not sure what the current status is, there doesn't seem to be any news coverage of this at all.

    Probably because everything is fine

    knowing sock, it wouldn't surprise me if that were the case.

    Wrong. Way wrong. Where do you get your info?

    Power was out everywhere in the EUP, except Pickford and parts of Rudyard.

    Much of the central and western UP is powered from companies in Wisconsin.

    So yeah, yuck it up.

    I was talking to actual human beings over there, who didn't hide behind anonymous computer screens. So, I'm more likely to believe what they had to say.
