A story posted yesterday says the power is back on but the problems and questions remain. The cost to San Diego alone is $100 million. Two nuclear power plants in California went off line and 2 million gallons of sewage spilled into the water.
It is astonishing what aspects of our lives are controlled by the power grid. People in California and Mexico spent a sleepless night in high temperatures because there was no air conditioning. Goes to show that while we think we have higher standards, truth is we no longer know the difference between convenience and necesity.
