LOL - I did a search but couldn’t find it on Google or Yahoo news. Have to admit, I’m glad I’m not there.

I do suspect there will be quite a lot of pranking going on tonight.

Terrorists may think this a great night for a “prank”.

Not sure you are correct calling it 'pranking.' Don't know what it's called in Arabic, but I think the Obama voters call it 'shopping after dark...'

I am in St. Mary’s County Maryland and the wind is mostly out of the SE, but it keeps changing direction, I judge it to be about 35 to 40 MPH. A right good breeze.

There’s probably stronger wind near the water, such as in St Mary’s County and Annapolis area. It’s only 13 mph in my area.

I just had a horrible thought, many speculate spaced aliens visited the ancient races like the Toltecs and such, what if the Mayan date is actually when we make first contact?

And its not friendly? What with colored lights description its sounding like something from a Spielburg film.

another strange thing- there hasn’t been any air traffic over us for hours, usually we have constant air traffic into BWI and can hear them even when we can’t see them in rain and fog but not tonight

close encounters?

goin’ to bed!

It’s the end of MArYlANd !

If you remove 'rld' from MArYlANd, you are left with 'MAYAN' and 'rld'.

(with the exception of a few MD FReepers, that really wouldn’t be the end of the world)

I'm sorry to say that 'rld' IS the end of the world.

Shopping after dark...that’s funny. And that’s why I put “pranks” in parenthesis.

Last report I received from my DPLS* showed him about to launch a flanking manuver around Nextel. Then all went, um, dark...

- substation Completely blew out

Wouldn't you think the utility would be able to confirm that quickly if it were the case? So far they haven't.

Here in our little town we had 83 mph winds the other night and within about 30 minutes the utility had every failure point up on a map.

So this is still a little mysterious.

There are 24 time zones worldwide.

There are actually 40. A number of places (for example, Newfoundland) are offset by a fraction of an hour.

Title of article reminds of a little diddy called, “Fire In The Sky” from the CD, “To Touch The Stars.”... If I’m going to go out in a blaze of glory blasting zombies away during the end of the world I might as well be listening to some great tuneage while I’m at it!

Well, here's a couple more old songs from different genres that might fit this breaking story (sort of...)

     Turn Out The Lights The Party's Over - Willie Nelson

     Boom Boom, Out Go The Lights - Little Walter

     The End Of The World - Skeeter Davis

I had not heard anything about him in last several years, or since we exchanged a short email.
I never understood why he would settle in Manila instead of Visayas.
I assume he is still married.

Sounds like transformers blowing. We had some here the other day, lost power, lines down due to winds. Sparks and ‘fire’ in the sky.

During Sandy I looked out my upstairs window of my house on Long Island and saw transformes blowing all abound. Didn’t see reds, but plenty of whites and especially greens and orange. Things repeated a week later when the Nor’easter blew in. The linked vid is clearly a main transformer blowing.
