I've tried em both out and when your power system is essentially a row of extra-large toothpicks strung together with twine, you are vulnerable to outages at all times. The wind kicks up to 25 m.p.h.? My building lost its power for the rest of the night. Didn't take much. I don't get that here. You have to have a big MF knockout event like the blackouts of 77 or 03 or at least a very large storm. Not everyday wind gusts and the like.

In my last residence, we had a clock on the bedside which I just stopped re-setting, since it was blinking 12:00 at least once a week when I came home from work. Some of the outages were seconds to minutes but others were hours and sometimes the power didn't come on all night well into the next day. Got old real fast.

Perhaps we should just forget about the always wrong models and use ONLY the European Weather Computer Modelling (ECMWF) for future storms.
As I see it, declaring all models equally useful is like comparing Nate Silver with UnskewedPolls.com and saying they're equally useful.
