I am on a business trip to attend a continuing education session this week. Much like we firefighters need CE hours to maintain our EMS certs, we power dispatchers put in a lot of hours to remain certified to run the grid, too. Since there aren't that many of us in the big picture, we tend to cluster in groups of around 30 or so for these sessions, and then disperse back to our control centers abroad.
As such, I will be off the blog for several more days.
Catch you when I get back.
