There is something fishy about the power

I wonder if there are government subsidies for getting power back to millions of people each year. This would explain a lot about why power companies refuse to put the power underground in the South.
The logic goes something like this. If the South doesn’t have terrible earthquakes, nor does it have bad landslides like on the west coast. But most of the damage is done above land via wind and water (ie. hurricanes/thunderstorms). This happens annually and it’s no surprise when it’s hurricane season again.
So if there are subsidies, why aren’t they removed and put in place as incentives to dig those ditches and stick the lines in the ground? If there aren’t, someone should force the power companies hand to do so. Like it or not, I for one am sick of my power flickering or going out when the slightest summer storm comes by and shakes its fist. It’s time that we stand up and force the hand of energy companies. Either that or hope that the Steorn challenge is real.
