Something weird happened at work the other day that may have been related to Sandy. A student called to find out if we had his bike (we did, he locked it to someone else's bike and it was impounded by a police officer) and left his number so we could call him back. The problem was that his number was for his cellphone, and we kept getting a "no service" message. He was here in Ann Arbor (no power outages here) so it wasn't as if the towers here were down. But he was from New York... the only thing we could figure is that his phone being from there and their servers being down there were making it impossible for him to receive our calls (the number was right, when we finally got to him via e-mail he confirmed it.)

So it might not be just a local issue, people all over the country might be having problems with their phones because of this storm.
