LES is Feeling Unempowered This Year

By: Mr. Wilson on August 19, 2011
LES sure is having a busy month, isn't it? Last night another 3,800 homes and businesses lost power. That's after a couple earlier batches of power outages. Their line crews are going to find fat paychecks in their mailboxes thanks to all this overtime. I'm surprised my neighborhood (near 48th and Highway 2) hasn't lost power in any of these storms. We have lots of large trees and plenty of overhead power lines. I suppose we've just been lucky. I wish the various utilities would come through and bury their lines, but I suppose I understand why that's not economically viable -- unless we're all willing to pay higher utility rates, of course. Did any of you lose power last night? Are any of you still without power?
