Re: Back to spring bulbs

Scary, Zem, Thank goodness it didn't start a fire.  
At least the power company came promptly and
fixed things.  When something like that happened
on our road last year it took them eight hours to 
get our power back on even though the downed
tree was cleared away in a couple of hours.

Last night I had just sat down at the computer at about 8:15 p.m. when there 
was a loud noise followed by complete darkness.  It turned out that my 
neighbor and I were the only two houses affected.  A large pine had fallen 
over on the wires and shorting out our shared transformer.  I don't know why 
the tree was leaning, but it appeared to be healthy.  The three of us (my 
neighbor, her husband and I) stood outside watching the electric company 
personnel (2) cut the tree apart, and we had power restored by 10:00 p.m.
