Hillbillies would NEVER say "powa." It's "pair."

Yep, i was on Northshore when it was out. All traffic lights was out, traffic backed up for miles. Where was the police to direct traffic through the lights???? LOL we need more trafic cameras to monitor people running red lights? Anyway it was nerve racking, but i am used to sitting in traffic for 2 or more hours when i lived in Virginia Beach. Just imaging Knoxville with 1 million more people living there? Scary isnt it, took mom and dad over 2 hours to get home at night there, usually people was still sitting in traffic at 9:30 pm to get home on I64, Mercury bld, the I64 tunnel, etc. And we even had HOV lanes in interstate (6 lanes on either side). It was so much fun i tell ya. Knoxville traffic isnt nothing compared to there.

Can we please start school after labor day when our power grid can't even support the pull from the air conditioners, who know how much this costs the county to cool these old schools down in 90 degree weather.

I don't know about the rest of you all, but I figure with what I am paying KUB every month, I should have electricity whenever I want it. I don't know how much more they think we can squeeze these turnips, but it seems like they are asking for blood. We turn off everything that we possibly can, and the bill still goes up.
