Squirrel!

Update on an outage I received from the NOC:

Updates: 9:40 PM CST, $Company fiber splice crew has located the fiber cut and working to repair the fiber, fiber cut was caused by squirrels that chewed through the fiber. The crew will need to use a bucket truck/cherry picker to access and repair the fiber, ETR 1 to 1.5 hours.

Stupid squirrels.

Where's Doug when you need him. ^_^
