Special Thanks to Area Utility Companies

Talk about a technical problem. The massive storm last night blew a tree right off its root structure and brought it down over powerlines out here in Old Washington. The result was that the power and phone lines to my house were literally ripped off the side of the building. Sure, we were temporarily in the dark out here, but candlelight is cool, and the response time by local utility companies in getting things back up and running was far better than what I expected. By early morning, the power was back on. By the afternoon, the wires were reattached to my house. Since I imagine that local utility companies rarely get a thank you note, I thought I'd give a shout out here and say thanks! Great job guys!
