    "Blistering heat wave stressing nation's power grid "

    Article I picked up from Drudge, you may have seen it already!
    http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories...07-20-14-35-53

    Basically the gist I got from the first few paragraphs is that the only reason we aren't seeing blackouts/brown outs is because there are no
    1. Big storms knocking things around right now
    2. The economy is weak, decreasing demand.

    It's fluff piece, I think, but one I share because while we are waiting for TEOTWAWKI, something stupid like a blackout could be getting ready to happen behind our backs.

    Your thoughts?

    This article does bring up a good point about how fragile our infrastructure is. The power grid hasn't been upgraded in years.... like water on a rock, all it takes is time.
