So---because Misery loves company...
Here, in Boulder Colorado...
We had some tornados touch down within 20 miles...and some pretty severe winds...Monday evening
at 5pm...while sitting at my computer trying to make sense of politics/crypto/economics/society (yes, call me foolish...) there was a burst of wind, doors flew open...and electricity went out....

Turns out something took down 3 poles of what was clearly a large feeder into an area serving probably
6-700 apartments (mine included...)

we got power back about midnight....
Candles....gonna buy a couple candles.....very interesting dealing with rooms inside, with no lights....

So---we considered it practice for our upcoming move to BangSaphan.....

Haha - yes, get used to it though they're not as severe over here.

Outages usually last about 1-2 hours and are down to sheer incompetence on the part of the PEA rather than acts of nature.
