Boom, Boom (Out Go the Lights)

from the archives

A distribution substation in central Ohio.  I took this photo back in 2003, about a week or two before the Northeast Blackout of 2003.  If I Recall Correctly, this particular substation was not affected by that event, but it was pretty near the edge of the outage area.  If you didn't know (or even if you did), I work in the power industry (Protection & Controls).  And I'm always noticing  these things.  This photo was taken with one of my early digital cameras, the quality is rather mediocre.

The title is from the Pat Travers song....
