The power came back on about 3 in the morning. The South end of downtown lost power just before 10pm on Thursday evening. The north end lost it sometime later. The only thing in downtown Kirkland that kept power the entire time was the Christmas tree (the photo is taken from our deck)
With power, internet access is returned too. We haven’t ventured out today to see how far the power extends, but we do have family coming over to take hot showers and do laundry, so they’ll know the extent of the local blackouts.
