Smokin’ Poll: Are You Happy With Your Electric Service?
75% of Lubbock was blacked out the other night. A ‘boil water’ proclamation had to be issued because of possible back flow problems. It seems like there should have been a little more fail-safes in the system to keep things like this from happening, or should there? More after the jump.
The city says a lightening interceptor blew causing other lightening interceptors to blow resulting in 54% of the city (as well as New Deal and others) losing power. It seems a little ridiculous that all of this is tied into the same grid, but hey, what do we know? Let us know; Are You Happy With Your Electric Service?
