    Apr 23, 2009

I was too young to understand anything but, "hide from the wind." End: There are countless emergency situations that can arise, and when one community is called to help another the best possible scenario is that everyone involved took the time to be prepared.

When demand exceeds production, something has to give. In many places that means almost daily "brown outs," where the flow of electricity is intermittent or irregular.
