On hold with ComEd… Power is back out


ComEd is now in the process of getting the downed tree off the power line, so they killed power to our neighborhood again. I’m coming to you from exciting battery backup at the moment, but may disappear for a while again soon…


Hey, progress: ComEd just came by with a van and a truck and put up caution tape. The truck left, and the van is still here… calling for backup, maybe? 🙂


Our power went out around 8:30 last night and came on about 3:30 AM… I’m not sure how, since this is our back yard at the moment. We’re on hold with ComEd trying to report it, so I might disappear again for a while today — it looks like one of those things they might have to break in order to fix. And our poor tree!


It just came out entirely by the roots! Yikes. Hope you guys came through last night’s storms OK.

Glad you are safe and man-power help is there to fix your electric. ComEd is quite busy today. A utility pole down the street from me cracked in half and ComEd was there installing a new pole/transferring the wires. That wind storm caused damage.

Wow! Better on the ground than on your house! And you still forge ahead with the deals! That's the spirit!

There's nothing much I can do about it right now! Bizarrely our power is still on -- we have a power pole in the front yard too so ours must come from that? ComEd is finally putting in a new pole now.
