Look for the 2nd half of 2012 to be worse than the first half, why? Just a feeling I have.
As of Tuesday evening, about 1.2 million customers scattered across 11 states, from Indiana to Delaware, had no electricity, down from about 1.8 million overnight -- and a peak of 4 million on Friday night and Saturday, just after the storms hit. A household is considered one customer, so the actual number of people without power is higher. The total included some 326,000 in West Virginia, 291,000 in Ohio and roughly 223,000 in Virginia, along with about 96,000 in metropolitan Washington, D.C. Utility and government authorities said some residents may not get electricity back until the end of the week.

You are 100% on point! Our infrastructure is failing and nothing is done about it. Bridges are falling apart with no repair in sight, gas lines are exploding due to corrosion and the weight of buildings on top of them that were not designed for such pressure, dams and levies are at a tipping point where they need major repairs as well. If the government does not do something about it, then we will not have to worry about terrorists destroying our country, time and mother nature will do it for them.
