Power Outages in the USA - An Open Letter to The President and Other Interested Parties


Mr President,

With respect to the power outages that seem to be affecting large numbers of people in the USA, I was somewhat surprised to see the apparent lack of speed with which the power is being restored.

That is at least how the media on this side of the "Pond" are portraying it.

I suspect that maybe the contigency plans of certain gov depts and companies have not been dusted down for a while.

A couple of months ago I wrote an article on "high level" contingency planning; which I posted on the "In Your Face" section of my website. It seems somewhat apposite under the circumstances.

Forgive me for putting my nose in where it is not wanted. However, if you are interested in reading it; and seeing what company bosses, and your elected officials should have done please feel free.

You are welcome to read it by

By all means pass it on to Mayor Bloomberg, and the like, if you feel that the response has not been sufficiently "up to the mark".

At this stage I wish you luck and a speedy return to normal. Also, as we say here in Britain; "keep a stiff upper lip!"

Yours sincerely,

Ken Frost
