The only thing criminal is leaving the power grid in the control of a pack of dimwits like Nstar. They don't have the combined intellectual wattage to light a christmas tree bulb, and yet they are tasked with providing power to our airports. My home base LWM suffered a power outage while I was doing pattern work in my Cessna and we lost everything- runway lights, tower beacon, the whole deal. The controller had his radios on battery power, so I was able to land there.
Nstar really needs to get some encouragement from the state government to upgrade their network.
