Came in at ~ 9 PT this morning to find the IFO "down". The IMC had lost its lock ~ 6 hours before, so at about 03:00 AM. Nothing seemed like the obvious cause; there was no record of increased seismic activity, all suspensions were damped and no watchdog had tripped, and the pressure trends similar to those in recent pressure incidents show nominal behavior (Attachment #1). What happened?

Anyways I simply tried reopening the PSL shutter, and the IMC caught its lock almost immediately. I then locked the arms and everything seems fine for now cool.
