MY: If you know anything about horse stall, they're lined up where the horses go in, two at a time to a horse stall, and then there's a walkway connected all the stalls. Well, they had divided the walkway by connecting it into the stalls itself by four by eight plywood, and above the four by eight foot plywood there's open space all the way through. For each section of the stall and the extension there's only one bulb hanging down, no big deal for the likes of our family, but for those families with young children and babies, they needed to heat their milk for the babies and they put extensions on it. When you have a number of extensions going out of one central unit, you had blackouts quite often because it would overload the system, and then finally administration said too many extensions being out, so all the extensions were pulled out. Well naturally, there was some reverberation to this because it was a necessary item, which the administration had not thought of, so that was one of the problems, and was, cannot be called a mob action or anything. It was a minor, understandable action. I think it was understandable even by the administration.
