Another quick post just to drop a link in here about the latest governmental report on Catastrophic power outages. A quick perusal of the report leaves a good impression. They realize the seriousness of the problem, are on the lookout for cascading failures, and want to “war game” their ideas. However, the problems here are nothing new. We’ve had warning after warning about this stuff for at least the last 20 years and not much has been done about it. This time could be different, but I’m keeping my battery stash and my flashlights handy.
