But this morning, with no lights on, Lamar held an almost scary feel to it. According to the Austin Energy website this is due to rolling blackouts. The first report I heard on the radio said that the outages should last only about 7 minutes per area. However, now they're saying they could last up to an hour in places.
According to the Electric Reliability Council of Texas, "the move follows a predesigned plan that distributes outages throughout the service area."
