Potential Site Disruption Due to Sandy- Contingency Plans to Announce Winners

In the event that the site is not back online by November 1st, the day we plan to announce the winners, we will delay the winners announcment for 48 hours and announce on Saturday, November 3rd. We hope everyone in the path of Hurrican Sandy is safe. Our thoughts are with you at this time. 

We received word from out hosting service that the data center where the Black Weblog Awards site is hosted is located in lower Manhattan. They stored the fuel for the backup generator in the basement and the beasement is now flooded and they are predicting they will run out of power soon.

Dear Customer,

I have some unfortunate news to share. Our primary data center, Peer1, in Lower Manhattan lost power yesterday at about 4:30PM local time. At that time, we smoothly made the transition to generator power and took comfort over the fact that we had enough fuel to last three to four days. (Peer1 stayed online during the last 3 major natural disasters in the area, including a blackout that lasted for days.) At 8:30PM yesterday, we received reports that the lobby in the data center's building was beginning to take on water. By 10:30PM, as is sadly the case in most of Lower Manhattan, Peer1's basement had experienced serious flooding. At 5AM, we learned our data center's fuel pumps and fuel tanks were completely flooded and unable to deliver any more fuel. At 8AM, they reported that the generators would be able to run for a maximum of four more hours. Unfortunately, this means that Squarespace will be offline soon (our estimate being at 10:45 AM today). Be assured that while this will impact our availability, there is no chance of data loss or any other permanent effects. We have simply run out of power, backup power, and cannot access our fuel in a flooded basement.
