Florida Blackout

Just thought this was an interesting event. CNN had reports of four million without power, then the power company said 800 thousand. Either way, it reminded me of the blackout in the summer a few years ago that occurred in the Northeast.

Having electricity is one of those things we take for granted, but there may come a time when it’s not there. People don’t think of the other effects of an outage besides their lights going out. It seems to have messed with cell phone service in Florida. They also mentioned it stopping train service.

It seems like the power grid system works but could be a bit fragile, but it is built to protect itself. The sad thing is that many Americans assumed it was an evil terrorist who caused it.
