WTF !! 44 million people in 6 million households and businesses without electricity !!.
[link to news.yahoo.com]

For power companies, the scale of the destruction was unmatched — more widespread than any blizzard or ice storm and worse than the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
"It's unprecedented: fallen trees, debris, the roads, water, snow. It's a little bit of everything," said Brian Wolff, senior vice president of the Edison Electric Institute, a group that lobbies for utilities.
Initially, about 60 million people were without power in 8.2 million homes and businesses. By Wednesday night, that number had fallen to roughly 44 million people in 6 million households and businesses.
Even as power slowly returned to some pockets, a new headache emerged: Backup batteries and generators running cellphone towers were running out of juice. One out of every five towers was down, according to the Federal Communications Commission.

Thinking the same thing. It's bad enough without this exaggeration.

But remember the death toll is minimal and nothng like Katrina or massive tornadoes in other parts of the country.
One of the most important aspects of conspiracy theories is being able to discern when there isn't one.

Oh yeah, like you'd understand anyway.

Evem thirty years ago, these kinds of lengthy power outages were unheard of. In the Washington, D.C. area, we never lost power for more than a few hours, no matter what kind of meteorological catastrophe occurred. Then, in the mid- 1990s, large snowfalls suddenly had the power to knock out power for days, even weeks at a time. Funny, these snow storms never effected power before.

Now, before a HAARP-produced extravaganza like Sandy, or Frankenstorm, officials routinely warn citizens there WILL be power outages, and to expect them to last for several days. No public official, from local to Congress, ever criticizes the horrific job the power companies do routinely now. The msm certainly doesn't question their gross incompetence.

This is all part of our training, so that we respond like Pavlovian dogs, to the bleak austerity measures they have in store for us. Maybe the t.v. show Revolution is more prophetic than we think. Maybe they will eventually take us all off the grid. Rolling blackouts, constant shortages of everything- you know, the typical Third World stuff. We are living in a Third World country now, so get ready to enjoy it.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26693398


A single customer/"household" can be a single family home or a multilevel apartment building. Household in this case generally refers to a single structure, which can have much more than one family.

What are you talking about? I live in PA and all my life every bad storm that has come along the first thing we worry about is if we lose power...always been that way. Without power, your heater likely won't work. That is concern #1 in any snow storm. Concern #2 is food and water, which we'd always stock up a bit extra when bad weather is coming so we'd have it.

We only got 2 inches of snow during Sandy but then it quickly turned back to rain. My father had to have the fire dept come pump his basement out because he's at the bottom of a hill and water collects on his property, but I was fine I live on top of a hill nearby.

See, me being an electrician I can tell you why we lose power during some storms..well the most common cause anyway, not including transformer/substation failures.

The earlier in the fall the snow comes, the worse it can be. Leaves on the trees plus snow= too much weight a lot of times. The branches/trees come down and hit power lines. Failure of a major power line can leave a whole community without electric. The power line that feeds my house goes the whole way up into the mountains and powers a few small towns up there. If this line were to get damaged down here they'd freeze up there if it wasn't fixed quickly.

This is why sometimes you can get the electric company to trim trees on your property that are close to the power lines, so that this whole thing is avoided. I'm going to call them soon myself because I have some HUGE trees right by the power lines that are easily 70 years old and the tallest I can see anywhere near my house. I fear some day they will either fall towards the road and sever the electric lines or fall on my house killing us all.
