ONE: The latest of Humboldt County’s Great Telecommunications Breakdowns has come to an end. Early-rising Friends o’ the LoCO tells us that the bits and bytes started flowing again at around 6 a.m., and your correspondent — who is still on AT&T for some reason, at least for a few days or hours more — can confirm their reports.
TWO: However, there is a good chance that your power is out. If last night’s mass blackout didn’t gitcha, you are among the lucky ones (aka, Eureka residents). As always, keep an eye on the LoCO’s outages page for detailed, mobile-friendly outage maps and status updates from PG&E.
THREE: If you have both Internet and electricity, note that a new episode of Serial — the podcast your grandma has heard of — surprised-dropped the first episode of its new season this morning, and it features none other than North Coast visitor Bowe Bergdahl!
FOUR: Flood watch canceled. Heaviest rain ended. From the National Weather Service:
THE FLOOD WATCH FOR A PORTION OF NORTHWEST CALIFORNIA HAS BEEN CANCELLED. THE HEAVIEST RAIN HAS ENDED AND WIDESPREAD SMALL STREAM AND URBAN FLOODING IS NOT EXPECTED.
FIVE: How are you?
