The road was closed in the area of the intersection with Manchester Road, a dispatcher with the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office said about 3:25 p.m.

Power was out for more than 500 DTE Energy customers in the area, according to the DTE Energy power outage map.

Skyline got half a day today due to another power outage. Interesting how they seem to be loosing power more often then not.

When I saw the headline, at first I thought that Trader Joe's was affected. Looks like some doctors' and physical therapists' offices and the university were affected, but NOT the Lamp Post Plaza businesses.

When I saw the headline, I thought it might be related to the brief (2-second) outage we had near Earhart and Waldenwood around 7:30 pm last night. However, the timing doesn't seem consistent with that.
