But, you really can't blame them...

I mean, they have only had power and indoor plumbing in Buckeyeland for the last 10 or so years. :P

It doesn't bother me, since I still have electricity. Espresso in the morning and cold beer after work or a ride. Nice clean fresh mountain air to breath and cool nights to sleep comfortably without the need of an airconditioner.

If your compatriots would use less electricity there would be more for the essentials. Suffer a bit in the heat, dim the lights, etc. It doesn't take much effort. Just use what most Americans lack (besides the good diction,) common sense.

Ontario (even more specifically their Electricity Board) is one of the parties to blame for the electricity problems in Eastern North America. Equal blame can be shared by the equivalent Electrical Grid managers of the affected American States for having an inferior distribution system.

That Latte was tasty this morning with breakfast, and the post ride ice cold smoothie was extra yummy. Now, what else can I do with electricity which is taken for granted?
