here in the south, summer storms are no new thing. usually every few days, some big thunderstorm rolls through, dumping rain, rattling windows with loud booms, and then moving on in 20 minutes or so.
same thing happened yesterday...except with ONE minor difference.
the bright spot in this whole debacle?? we have a corner lot. so OUR power lines from the main line come from the back of the house. sooo.....our power was back on in about 90 minutes! everyone else on our block had to wait for them to take the broken pole down, put the new one up, and run the new lines....plus you know, neighbor's busted up box.
