It snowed today.
Last night was very restless and I got out of bed at 1am. I heard a loud BOOM and then the power went out. I waited until 5:30am and contacted my supervisor to let him know there was no heat or power and I did not want to leave my practically hairless dog in the cold.
It was fortunate I was here, because even after 1,098 peoples power was restored there were still 2 that were not, this house was one of them. The other house was up the street from me. There are transformer power poles behind both homes, which blew half their power. If I had not been home, it would have been too late to have power restored by the time I arrived from work. Finally at 2:30pm power was back up.
I got to thinking about what I need to do to be prepared more fully should this happen again. Winter has only begun, and chances are with the weather being so whacky, it could very well happen.
I make a mental list, I should probably write it down.
Take care everyone. I wish you well and safe.
