Scotty, we need more power!!! – Con Ed warns on blackout

I guess the folks from ConEd, still smarting over the whole 10 days without power in Queens incident, are taking the advice of PR or anyone with half a brain, and warning people about a potential blackout.

From 1010Wins: Con Edison is urging all custorners in Midtown East to discontinue their use of non-essential electrical appliances and equiprnent until problerns on electrical equiprnent can be resolved.

Hey, I understand – the heat is on, and there’s more power demand than ever before. I’m doing my part – I shut my second monitor off, and I’m working by laptop and one desk lamp. But it is weird sitting here waiting for the light I’ve left on to go out.
