In the news this morning, the Statue of Liberty experienced a power outage last evening which left many scratching their heads. Only Lady Liberty’s torch and crown were visible in the night sky as the statue stood in darkness in New York Harbor for a few hours.  Some on social media presumed that the outage was a reference to A Day Without A Woman, the women’s strike planned for today across the United States.  Others assumed it was in honor of Mr. Roberge's birthday.  In the end, the National Park Service said the problem was likely due an ongoing project to activate a new emergency backup generator.
