Power Outage Strikes Detroit… .

Reminds me of that old Pat Travers song – “Boom Boom, out go the lights!”

Anyway, an old and antiquated system, and we don’t need terrorists or any solar flare to knock us off-grid.  This is the state of things in many areas of the country.  In Detroit, this type of thing happens more often than you’d think.

Hopefully the EBT system is still working, right?  If not, lookout… !

I’m surprised anyone was around to notice.
