Brooklyn Brownouts - Riffs and Licks
Brooklyn Brownouts
The low-voltage problem continues in most of western Prospect Heights. Street lights are dim, grocery store freezers are way too warm (soupy ice cream, just the right thing for a hot and muggy night) and the elevators in most of the large apartment buildings aren't working. Hot water is intermittent as well. According to my co-op board, Con Ed is finally admitting there's a problem but they promised to have it fixed by 8pm tonight. Meanwhile, it's 10:30 and according to my UPS, incoming voltage is 97.1. (It should normally be at least 110.)

You, my friend, are living in Brazil. Keep complaining about brownouts, and Robert DiNiro is going to come crashing trough your window to take away your UPS.
