Blacked Out? Answered
I was going to ask are you caught in the blackouts I'm seeing on the news?
Anyhoo, if you're reading this after the power comes back on, how did you cope? What Instructables could you use to make life easier?
UPDATE: And, if you're an engineer, could you design a better system where a single throw of a switch on a substation blacks out five million people, shuts down two nuclear reactors and even closes beaches?
The outage was triggered after a piece of equipment was switched off at a substation in Arizona, officials said. ... Daniel Froetscher, a vice-president at APS, told the Associated Press news agency the malfunction at the substation was "not a deliberate act".
"The employee was just switching out a piece of equipment that was problematic," Mr Froetscher said.
