Power Is Out

We lost power at 6:50 PM during a period of wind and rain. We are barely on the edge of the storm and did not expect to loose power so soon. I called the city utility company and they were holding back sending out a crew until the current rain band passed. They indicated that it would be at least another 15 minutes. At 7:20 two big yellow utility trucks drove past our house on their way to restore power. A little bit later,  two more trucks passed by, one with
A brand new, shiny utility pole. I guess one of the utility poles must have broken or was damaged by nearby trees.

11:18 PM power is restored. Nice to have the air conditioning and refrigerator back on line. Time to try to get some sleep but it’s going to be hard to sleep soundly.

Hurricane Frances was moving but has stopped moving again right after making landfall on Florida’s South East coast. Tornado warnings are in affect until 8:00 AM.  This is one big scary storm.
