We're getting a boatload of tips this morning that Verizon service has been down in Wyoming, Colorado, and parts of the Midwest this morning. An article posted on Wyoming's thetrib.com
cites a "technical snafu" overnight at a Colorado-based switching center as the culprit with plans in place to have everything back up and running by late morning Mountain Time today, but we're curious who all has been affected -- Midwesterners in particular, have you gotten dragged into this nonsense?

We've received Verizon's official statement, and it sounds like everything should've been back on the straight and narrow by 2PM MT today; for what it's worth, Denver and the surrounding areas were never affected.
