Well, it's been almost 2 hours. I really hope they get the power back on soon because I'm running out of candles! Also, I hope they update the article and let us know where on el camino the accident occurred and if the people inside the car are alright.

Does anyone have an update on when the power is going to come back on? 3 hours later and MV voice has yet to post anything about the outage.. this is the only information online so far.

Not much help I'm afraid, but here's what I found out. Web Link
I hope that the Christmas Spirit is alive in Mountain View with neighbors helping out neighbors. I trust that this Christmas may bring happier memories than losing power to all in Mountain View.
