Sustained Deep Undervoltage

Posted by Bruce Kahl on November 12, 2003

A big chunk of North America-50 million households-lost their electricity this summer for up to a week.
So I sent my local power company a bill for my lost White Castles.

Now these were not your run-of-the-mill store bought, deeply frozen Castles sitting in your local supermarket.
Nosireebob,these were purchased fresh locally and flash frozen to perfection and I lost them all. Ouch!
They will not send me my 13 dollars because the event was a "Sustained Deep Undervoltage" and they are not responsible for my lost Castles.

Sustained Deep Undervoltage---Just consider this post as the birth announcement of a newly coined technobabble.
