It's been 48 hrs ............


Day 6: I HAVE POWER!!!!!!!!

I'm lucky too - the phone rang and it told us that 11% of our town has been restored. The original estimate of 99% restoration by Sunday at midnight (8 days after the storm) was too ambitious!!!!

Cheers to living 2 streets behind the town center!

I know what you mean about being among the first to get your power back. We are on the same line as the fire department around the block from us. Not everyone on my street is. So sometimes my neighbors will lose power, but my house and about 3 other houses on this end of the street will still have it.

I'm glad your power is back on. Did you have any problems with your water pipes freezing?

OK, maybe I don't have power....... I'm leaving work in a minute to go home, but I just found out that the house a few houses down from me was on fire last night!!! I guess the stove was left on?

Idunno - we'll see. It says they had to "cut power" to the street during the blaze, hopefully that means they turned it back on.
