Following last week’s blackout, this applet that let’s you watch power flow around the Eastern region is pretty interesting. Shows which areas the power comes from and where it goes. I’d wondered where the transmission lines that run above my gym went - mostly when it was snowing and raining and you hear the hissing from it hitting the lines.

And I know they are saying it started a problem in the MidWest, but I still have a gut instinct to blame Canada.
