  • Hey you americans

    Stop stealing our power, i get out of the shower and the power goes out yet again, so here i am walking around naked with my hair soaked after suffering with no power last evening because your hydro plant on the US niagara side brought ONT and New York states to its knees with no power.

    This is just a joke post, glad we are both relinked, they just relinked us as of 10:30am EST.

    glad this is my day off

      I believe they are trying to bring all the power up slowly so there aren't giant surges that can cause further blackouts. To do this, they have to bring up power, route, reroute it, bring up other power and so forth until it is all working again.

            Actually, they said that there is no evidence that says it was the New York plant that did it. That was just speculation.

                Actually, now that you bring it up. A plant spokesperson for the Niagara Falls Plant said it was an issue with a Canadian plant on the opposite side of the river that caused the initial problem that resulted in the fire in the U.S. Plant at Niagara...

                Really doesn't matter who's fault it is. The U.S.'s and Canada's power grid are so tightly interwoven that we need additional power generation capabilities, improved monitoring, better transmission lines and increased vigilence to make it a more reliable system. Fingerpointing isn't going to solve any of that and the consumer will ultimately suffer because of it.

                  And the power grid alone in those areas are older than most people on this board.
