Something going down in Washington

Something of great signifigance is happening or has just happened in Washington.

Reuters is reporting on a power outage in Washington ... A Homeland Security officer said it only affects Capitol buildings. Everyone was evacuated and kept out of the buildings for a period of time. "Pepco," supposedly their power supplier, is investigating what happened. The story is below.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Capitol was evacuated on Monday after electricity was briefly lost, police and Senate officials said.

A Pepco spokeswoman said power was restored to the building and the company was investigating the cause of the outage.

A spokesman for Republican Majority leader Bill Frist said the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate were evacuated because of the widespread black out.

"It's routine procedure to evacuate the building," said spokesman Eric Ueland.

A Department of Homeland Security official said it was a "simple power outage" that only affected the Capitol not other buildings.

Alarms went off on both sides of the Capitol building and people were ordered to leave. U.S. Capitol Hill police were directing people to move away from the building and across the street.

I do not trust this. Something has happened. Something other than a simple power outage. Why did it only affect the capitol buildings? That is SO strange. I will keep my darkest fears out of public discourse unless they come true. But I'm wondering what this Pepco company is and who runs it. I'll have more here if I find anything.
