Rolling Blackouts

Julie D. explains it all... and it beats typing it for myself!
Maintenance overhauls were scheduled at several plants planning on the usual cooler weather that didn't have everyone's air conditioner working overtime. So they were out of the grid when the weather in Dallas hit an unseasonable 101 (I knew it seemed like summer today!) and the electric company had to institute rolling blackouts through the town.
The heat was crazy and the blackouts were... annoying, I'm sure. What's most annoying, though, is the heat. Summer has hit in April. Today was the hottest day ever recorded in April for our area. Nuts, I tell you. Nuts!
