UPDATE: Rolling Blackouts Could Come Rolling Back To El Paso

Yesterday, KVIA reported that the wildfire that is burning out of control in Arizona and other western states, could threaten El Paso Electric’s power lines.  Those lines provide about 40% of El Paso’s electricity, and that could mean the rolling blackouts that we suffered through in February could be coming back.  And El Paso Electric’s latest press release makes it seem like that’s becoming more and more likely….

EPE is putting out guidelines about how to deal with rolling blackouts, so I’m guessing since they’re trying to answer questions to head off any problems that will inevitably arise if the blackouts happen.  Actually, you gotta give them props for doing the advance work.  Severe weather, cold or hot, can kill you, and since we are heading into long stretches of triple digit heat and humidity on top of that, the tips are very important. 

The article isn’t long, so read it, or even print it out.  It’s a good thing to start thinking about getting water and some extra candles and batteries, too.  And get ready to start making paper fans because I think we’re going to be doing some sweating in the days ahead…..
