Although I’ve been too busy to write about squirrel antics, it doesn’t mean they have been laying around doing nothing! As usual, power outages have been reported all over the country! Squirrels may have knocked out your power recently if you live in the following places: North Maketo, IA, Comstock Park, MI, Redding, CT, Springfield, MA, Wauwatosa, WI, Grand Rapids, MI, Kinnelon, NJ, Mountain Home, ID, Kalispell, MT, Concord, NH, Monroe, CT, Ashville, NC, Cape Girardeau, MO, Milwaukee, WI, Talahassee, FL, Sunnyside, WA, New Orleans, LA, and for the third time in one month: Bay City, MI.
Squirrels went international with power outages in Vancouver, and Kelowna, British Columbia as well as in Brazil. And journalists can't get enough of cyber-squirrel attacks, with recent features about squirrel related power outages in Slate, as well as how independent microgrids limit the damage squirrels can do.
