Elizabeth never saw the English Blackout of 2048 coming. It was a different attack than the others, aimed at a specific power station. It was a masterful stroke, aimed at causing stress to the surviving grids by taking one station out of the network. Soon all power and network connections went into system overload. Communications, power, and everything else. She kept the grids from burning out by triggering a total shutdown. It was bad, but she kept it from being worse. And her daughters started to come around on the “mother knows best” stuff too.
