BBC News – Scotland storm: Engineers battling to restore power

BBC News – Scotland storm: Engineers battling to restore power:

(Via www.bbc.co.uk)

Yes, the wind did blow and yes, the people did shut down the country as instructed. But I’d wager that there are few “engineers” battling to restore power. Engineers are normally not qualified to to do this sort of work. For this we need trained power maintenance technicians.

Maybe because they are using engineers for this, this is the reason it is taking so long to restore power to some customers?

Full disclosure: I am an engineer.
