Will snow in China cause a shortage of ones and zeros halfway around the globe?

It said the company already has solutions to deal with the power rationing

Next time the weather channel says there's a storm brewing --anywhere-- make sure to grab a bunch of PCBs along with the milk and bread. You never know how long you're going to be housebound and you don't want to run out.
