Snow, Wind & Blackouts, Australia's 50 Year Polar Low

With the polar low sweeping across Australia , it took down the power grid and dropped heavy snow across the east again. Media claims this to be a once in 50 year event, but its the 2nd once in 50 year and once in 100 year event these last two months. Wind power shut off of 40% of South Australia's power generation is to blame, winds were too strong so they shut them down.
