Power out... (storm aftermath reporting here)

Recommended Posts

Dropping like flies in Bethlehem Township-we were the first.  I heard what sounded like a gunshot just as ours went out which was the circuit breaker on our line opening.  Our friends up on the hill closer to 31 just went out a few minutes ago.  Got the generator cranking because we're low priority-our line only feeds us and one neighbor.

Glad you got a generator SY, hope it's not too long.

I was working yesterday at the construction of a new restaurant suddenly power went out. Came outside I could see the squirrels tail hanging out of the transformer smoldering lol.

Yep I’m holding onto power on top of the “Jug” but I’m ready for power loss. Wood stove cranking and generator ready. I’m the lone house half mile off the road so needless to say I’m a last priority. It’s give and take for privacy.

Woke up to the sound of a medium duty truck with flashing lights rolling down the lane about 30 minutes ago-normally something I'd be alarmed by but not this morning!  I can see the flashlights and spotlights darting all over the woods so it must be more than just an open breaker.  Hope this is not a sign of things to come this winter...

Hopefully your power is restored soon. 

Restored as of 6:00 a.m. - about 18 hours, which is pretty good for this area.  Tree came down and took the whole line out.  When I see the Nelson guys this summer I need to remember to buy them a couple cases of beer to try to get them to cut more.
