Power Problems in Florida…again

You just have to love reading things like this after a large state-wide power problem:

It took only three minutes for an overheated switch and then a fire at a power substation near Miami on Tuesday afternoon to shut down a nuclear plant south of the city and trigger Florida’s largest blackout in at least 20 years. Figuring out why is going to take longer.

If you’re like me and you don’t get the warm fuzzy feeling about the power company when a switch in Miami shuts down the nuclear plant…I’d suggest it’s a good reminder to check your battery backups and make sure your important data is backed up.
