Great news – the electricians have determined what the issue is has caused the power problems we have had. I have a new and renewed appreciation for electricity that we depend on every day. Not only for how it powers everything we do, but for how powerful it is. Check out this BrainPOP movie for a quick overview, or this HowStuffWorks article for a more in-depth discussion of electricity.
I also highly recommend a visit to the Niagara Power Project Power Vista in Niagara Falls. It is a free hands-on learning center to discover electricity and how the massive power plant there was built.
