Don’t know if you’ve heard about PEPCO or not but they are the worst electric providers in the country. Their power outages are infamous and the reason why I spent a small fortune putting in a generator and transfer switch.
Sandy never got above 45mph and our lights never went off...so far. Much ado nothing.
At least dysPEPCO doesn’t have power lines strung all over on telephone poles like they do in most of Shoot Cago.
We have the same trouble here because the city does not keep the trees trimmed back from the powerlines.
I’ve seen power drop in a 15mph wind.
Mark for tomorrow when the sun comes up.
