    I read elsewhere it was 3 major power grids involved.



    Posted this because with our coal plants being shut down by obama's EPA regulations, and the majority of our electricity comes from coal, we should not be surprised if this is our story one day. :tear:

    When storms knocked out power a few weeks ago in WV and Kentucky and in some Eastern states, millions were without power here for a few days (I have relatives who were without power for a week) and millions of tons of food had to be thrown out, people were suffering in the extreme heat. But to my knowledge, we have not seen power grids collapse like what is happening above - in the heat of the summer.
