Take Obama's advice, Pepco: Bury power lines
A few inches of snow fell, and nearly half a million local customers were without electricity, again, because of our quaint custom of distributing electricity by festooning wires between wooden poles. If this nation wishes to return to greatness in technological innovation as President Obama called for in his State of the Union address, we need reliable distribution of electricity and data. The only solution is to bury the power lines. The installation costs will be well worth the reduced number of outages.
