Tonight oughta be "interesting"

If you are in Puerto Rico, at least.

Seems the power generating/distribution company that covers most of Puerto Rico had a MAJOR fault....and a substation caught fire at a substation, leaving the majority of the island without power.

Tonight oughta be interesting for the poor folks living there.  I bet it gets....."sporty" in some neighborhoods tonight. And maybe tomorrow night.

As a side note, seems that a small, but significant, number of hotel and other businesses that had generators never balanced them, nor did proper preventative cleaning/maintenance on them....and they caught fire under load....which is a lesson we can ALL learn from.
