Looked at the Greystone Power outage map  found at http://www.outageentry.com/dvMapViewer/dvOutageMap.php?Client=greys and there are 58 homes in the Mason Creek/Bill Arp area ( a narrow part stretches to Hwy 166 as well) without power and one in the Nebo area.  I think I am in the outage area, or maybe on the border of it, so that was probably why the lights flickered.

2:14am–just checked the power outage map again and it’s gone up to 90 homes now.

2:16am Now number is 901!  100 people have called Greystone.
2:21pm 107 people have called Greystone.  Outage number hasn’t changed.  I do wish, though, that you could zoom in on the map and see what streets are affected.  A portion of Hwy 5 before the city limits is included in the outage.
2:24pm The one Nebo area residence whose power was out is now back on.  Mason Creek numbers haven’t changed.
2:28am 111 calls now to Greystone.
