Ack! I know! My town wasn't even in the affected grid, but we were sharing our power (like we even have much of it with all couple thousand of us ) with the surrounding areas. Well they are being greedy as hell and now our power is getting shut down every so often for hours at a time Ugh! And my boyfriends boss runs the car wash and insists on keeping that open!!! People are supposed to be minimizing everything, and here he is on borrowed hydro running the wash!

More than a nuissance if you have animals that can't tolerate the conditions and end up dying... or animals that end up puking up there food and sick from the improper, unstable conditions.....
