This from today, Practical Engineering:
I liked that video. I thought he did a decent job explaining the sequence leading up to the power failures.
We went into this expecting to have some "rolling blackouts" - off for a few hours, then back on again. That would have been manageable. Instead, it went out, then stayed out for 2 days at my house. Then in other neighborhoods a few miles away, it was off for less than 24 hours.
