Like all major storms, power is out to 1,000,000 people. Well, since they
know that is going to happen, why don't they shut power off to the affected
areas before hand, so they don't have to replace all the blown up
Is it a liability issue; they would be sued if they cut power, so they let
nature do it?
We had a major ice storm here 14 years ago that took 2 weeks to recover
from. Someone I knew went to a hill overlooking the town and watched the
transformers blow up all over town; said it was spectacular.
