APOD has been so reliable, day after day for years, it didn't occur to me that there was a problem at GSFC. After all these years, it actually became unthinkable that APOD was down.
Living in Australia, I'd heard about the storms and power outages in the US, but didn't make the connection. Actually I was really disappointed with MY network for 'stuffing up'.
Not too worried because I can see previous APOD images and my DEV system is down, which gives me extra time today.
