Our server farm is located in our home, specifically in a loft in the detached garage. As it's a separate building, it has its own power, which is fed from a powerline from the house.
This winter has been more brutal than most, and the powerline to the garage (which is original to the dwelling) has frayed with the influx of ice. This fraying has caused the line to short out. This is why the power is out, and Squidge.org is down.
An electrician was able to come out last night on an emergency call (electricians are about 30 days out where we are, due to weather). He diagnosed the issue, and said that he was going to have to replace the line between the house and the garage. He was going to expedite it; someone is supposed to come out today - but that doesn't necessarily mean that the job will be completed today. I'm hoping it will be, but I'm not holding my breath.
More updates as I get them. Think good thoughts for them to complete the work today and that we can come up later on - hopefully that will happen.
