A Texas meterologist had that experience last week, when he was talking about the current strain on the power grid. Travis Herzog of KTRK in Houston, Texas, was delivering the forecast when the lights went out - just as he said they might.

Lights Go Out Not Once, But Twice

You know, it's one thing for a forecast to be wrong, but this report appears to be a little too accurate. reports that during an afternoon broadcast on KTRK in Houston, Herzog warned about how the high temperatures could impact the power grid.  The moment he said “When you get this kind of heat over major populations, you get a big draw on that electric demand”, the station lights went out.

The same thing happened during Herzog’s 5 p.m. broadcast while he was predicting highs over 100 degrees west of Houston last Thursday.

It wasn't all bad, though. Herzog also commented on Twitter that at least the air conditioning was working. That would certainly be a bright side!

ERCOT Warning

Last Wednesday, the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) asked the public to conserve energy by not using large appliances between 2 p.m. and 9 p.m. and raising the temperature on their thermostats. It was the second time in three days that ERCOT made this request.
