  •  Blackouts in Germany are essentially nonexistent, (12+ / 0-)

    because most power lines are underground, plus extreme weather is just really rare (so far). Until a couple of years ago I lived in a very rural area for a number of years that did still have overhead power lines, and one night one of the masts was struck by lightning and caught fire, so that put out the lights for a couple of hours in my village. That's about it.

    I imagine I did experience some power outages in the US, but I don't remember any significant ones.
