    Yes. You better go catch it. Ah ha ha remember prank calls? But seriously someone flexed some muscle today. Yesterday the local news warned of brownouts so turn your heat up to 85...lol.
    Today at 12:58 the power went out as if on schedule but only for long enough to make everything reboot.
    So I gotta ask "is your refrigerator running?".

    How about.......Do you have Prince Albert in a Can? It was 104 here in E Neb yesterday, hottest day since 2012 they said. I thought about that when everybody went home after work and cranked up the AC's.

    It was less than 18 hours of warning of brownouts where we had one kinda sorta. Probably a squirrel died but it's way funner to think it was a Russian hacker named Peggy Peggy

    Actually had to work on my fridge yesterday. Ha, ha. Water was dripping from the top of the fridge section. Turns out the back panel of the freezer was pushed in and touching the condenser coils. Probably from cramming to many ducks in there. Water wasn't making it to the drip pan. Instead it was running down the back of the panel and onto the top of the fridge section.

    Here in Californication we have rolling blackouts. Had one yesterday from 12 to 3:30. Temp was 103.

    Need more electric cars in CA. Good thing CA does not get power from Lake Mead.

    They get almost all the power from Mead/Boulder Dam.

    Yes, I was using irony to contrast CAs push toward green/electric vehicles at a time when they already lack enough electricity and the hydroelectric power supply is in jeopardy due to low water levels.

    Quit clouding the argument with facts.
