because it DOESN'T LOOK ANYTHING LIKE THAT! This is some photoshopper's impression of the apocalypse or something. But yes those are our Simpson's towers. They are small though.
However, the story from which I pulled that picture is correct, we are experiencing "load shedding", strangely reminiscent of the rolling blackouts Californians will remember when some corrupt bastards undertook to ruin everyone else. This is oddly familiar! Hopefully the party will take some fast action to allow self-generators to sell back to the grid. Because every self-respecting business and many of the universities (not us, of course) are generating their own power for the 2-3 hrs in midday when the blackouts roll through.
