Rolling Blackouts

Yesterday we had rolling blackouts across the state.  Apparently, due to the weather, the power grids are being taxed, so Texas was doing rolling blackouts last up to 30 minutes each time across the state.  My building was on a backup generator, so we didn't notice anything while I was at work.  However, hubby said it happened several times during the day while he was at home.

If people would just do their part to try to save energy, we would not be in this situation.  Don't leave every light in the house on; change your bulbs to the more energy efficient bulbs; and, most definitely don't crank up your heater when the temperature drops below 50.  Hubby and I don't live a "green" lifestyle, but we try to do our part to conserve.
