The Land of the Rolling Blackout

That’s us. Well, so far, it hasn’t hit The Woodlands, I don’t think, but it might happen, so we’d all better be prepared. I’m not getting on any elevators until this thing is over. Heck, I’m not even going to get on an escalator at the mall. The thing might come to a sudden halt and send me flying.

Looks like they could warn people when they’re going to shut off the power. Meanwhile, they’re asking everyone to conserve electricity. I may be dumb, but I’m not exactly sure how to do that. Don’t wash clothes? Don’t use the garage door opener? Sit around in the dark? Turn off the TV? Do a self-imposed blackout? Do that, or they’re going to do it for us? Maybe we need to build a fence around Texas and not let anyone else move here until they get the power-plant situation figured out. It’s easy for me to say that, now that I’m here…
