Did you try to get your morning dose of Pat Kiernan before heading out the door this morning only to be met by the black screen of death? Time Warner Cable is down in Brooklyn, and parts of Queens, for at least a few hours. We called to find out more but their phone is busy, or off the hook, or something.

However, NY1 is reporting that "several thousand Time Warner Cable customers in Brooklyn and Queens have lost video service after high winds knocked down a Queens power line."

The good news is that internet is still working... for now. Although this past week it was down in parts of Brooklyn for six days, which had both FIPS and the Brooklynians ranting about TWC's service.
