I'm currently a substation engineer, in order to change, it can take years for design, but mostly permitting before construction can even begin. With a transmission project, each property requires an easement and in many cases, most government property requires an environmental study.I thought they were going to correct that after Texas froze a couple years ago?
So in other words, the puke politicians aren't doing much of anything? God help us if The U.S is ever attacked. We'd be history before they got the permits. And if bidden and hair-arss were in office? Ooof.I'm currently a substation engineer, in order to change, it can take years for design, but mostly permitting before construction can even begin.

The government doesn't work for you. It's like when a politician touts how their gun control measure is helping.So in other words, the puke politicians aren't doing much of anything?

man i had beers to drank today.. it was too hot to just be home so i had to go get on the water and subsequently be not only still hot but also in DIRECT sunlight all day
My Dad used to tell me the same Adam Schiff when I was a kid bugging him for a soda... frankly, I never tried it!My late husband used to say that if you drink something hot, a mug of black coffee, when it is hot outside or on a ship (Below deck. Engine or boiler rooms.) where it is humid/hot like in Nam, all over the world, etc. - you don't feel as hot as if you drank a cold soda or iced tea.
His fellow shipmates said the same thing too.
He said the same thing for Central and South America, in other parts of the world, etc. while on the ground with the Air NG Fighter Wing too.
He followed the same procedure (Black coffee.) AND added cold water or cold milk to his daily routine when he was not drinking coffee. He did drink some iced tea once in a blue moon but he preferred his mugs of GOOD plain coffee.
I drink far LESS coffee compared to when I was younger but a mug of plain hot and good coffee, a hot cup of tea, a hot cup of water with a dash of honey in it usually COOLS me off better than a cold glass of water or a glass of iced tea.
QUALITY made cranberry, orange, grape or blackberry juice with NO added sugar in it served super cold and with LOTS of ice is a nice treat too. Sometimes apple juice is so so and you may as well eat the apple all alone with a glass of water on the side.
Spicy food ala Mex and Tex-Mex is good ANY time! So are Isley peat scotches!I never tasted bourbon.
I did taste some famous type of 'scotch' one time that some client gave to my Aunt C - the famous lawyer and not just due to her law firm as a partner from the early 50's and on.
God - I almost choked. It was famous, expensive and a Christmas gift to her. I took one taste of it and holy moly. I did not like the taste of it at all.
My late Mom used to say, "Eat this or that since it is GOOD FOR YOU (Quality food.) and it will put hair on your chest!"
That was fine for my older brother but my older sister and I would say that we did not want hair on our chests. IT was a JOKE for some of you who don't get my old time sayings that some of us were raised with.
I did hear that spicy food was good to eat in hot weather too.
On the last flight I took, across the aisle the girl ordered an IPA. The man next to her asked what that was.What is IPA? I looked it up. India pale ale. I never heard of that name or those words before.
What could have possibly possessed you to do that to yourself?
No, all politicians are the same. This has gone on for 50 years! He's just the most recent. There is not enough in fixing it for a 'person' to spend HUGE $$$ on. Name it what? The Biden Electrical Transmission Park? Doesn't matter to them. Plenty of other things to spend someone else's money on that'll bring more recognition. Hardening and updating the grid just isn't anywhere on their list of importance. The next guy's problem!Maybe with biden's new "Climate Emergency" declaration, things can be sped up..
