We had a power outage that lasted about an hour, so Adam and I used it as an excuse to take a little drive to see where the damage might be. We can’t really drive by our substation, but I figured the problem lay there. There were several Consumers vehicles checking the lines up on M-86 near Matteson Lake Road. We took Liberty along for the ride, since I figured we wouldn’t be out for long. Plus, we rarely take our dogs for rides anymore, so it was a real treat for her, I’m sure.
I feel for Marc on his first day, having to just sit and listen to calls for the first few days. But I think he’ll be quick to pick up a lot on that job, a lot more than I ever seemed to pick up.
