Preliminary indications are that Thursday's massive power outage was triggered by a tree which got a little too close to a 340 kilovolt powerline. That act of unwelcome physical contact apparently happened at 3:06 PM between Harding and Chamberlaine, Ohio, just south of Cleveland. Subsequent outages began to spread from there, eventually reaching New York City over an hour later.
Fortunately. with its lack of conservation efforts and ongoing liberalization of logging laws, the Bush Administration is already well on its way to victory in the War on Trees.
