Power Outage Update

My local power company sent an email explaining the power outage we had the other day. They claim it was caused by tree limbs falling on wires. 

That makes sense. A lot of trees were damaged over the winter. Instead of light fluffy snow we got a lot of freezing rain and heavy wet snow. A good percentage of those trees will never recover. On top of that we had some high winds. 

Speaking of high winds we had an amazing thunderstorm blow through yesterday. The weather app showed lightning strikes zero miles away. The weather map display was a very tight grouping of lightning strikes -all around my house. 

Much to my surprise we didn’t lose grid power or even Internet during the storm. Luck of the draw, I guess.
