I had a really serious talk recently about going to a remote cabin with:
1) water from a well
2) wood burning stove
3) lots of dehydrated food for "deep storage" of several months supply of
The thought was that the electrical companies in the United States share a power grid. If a few electrical companies' power go out then a domino effect will occur due to the fact that energy companies have few reserves and depend on buying residual power (excess production) from each other. A few failures and black outs will results.
This seems (unfortunately) reasonable ** IF ** power outages do occur. I have read (from computer programmers some of which are on this List I think) that such outages are possible or even likely.
Please respond to the List and:
