Ok, here’s the deal.

Some years back, a relative of mine got an electric bill with a surcharge of 300% for one month...owing to having been charged for electricity generated for his house by a generator after a storm. HIS house. In particular. That’s granularity.

Now, in that general area, people have died from a lack of electricity, because of this past set of storms. Ball park: restored. People: dead. How easy is that? After all, it takes either physically restoring lines and poles or resetting motherboards, right? Oh. Did I mention the people were older? Tsk. What a shame, right?
