They are targeting major sub-stations.
Scobie substation in southern NH and the big one in southern Massachusetts, I forget the name of it.
It looks like they want to take out the canal between Lake Champlain, VT and the Hudson River, other than the US naval museum where the US Navy was founded in Whitehall, NY, I don't know what else is a target there.
Maybe Freepers familiar with the power infrastructure near some of the other dots can tell more.
By hitting the substations they are leaving the generating capacity intact, with easily replaceable (by the Chicoms as they make the huge transformers and switchgear need in big substations) infrastructure for afterwards.
If they win the war, they have their conquered country (us) back up and running quickly.
If they lose the war, they sell us the equipment.
The Russians will hit the cities in the midwest and on the east coast.
