We have just lost electrical power to 3/4 of our house including BOTH refigerators, heater, stove, microwave and most of the lights and outlets. This computer, as you can see, is still working but the cable modem is connected to a UPS backup battery with I’m sure will go out soon. The good news is that the TV is still working. We have a guy coming within the hour so hopefully we will have power soon. If not, I hope you all have a much better weekend than we are having and I’ll see you next week.
Great news…. sorta! We called a 24/7 Electrical company and the guy was here within 45 minutes. It turns out that half of our main breaker bit the dust. The auxilliary breakers aren’t great shakes either as they are 50 YEARS OLD!! He replaced the main one for a mere $2100, so we have power again.
The company wanted to charge us $6400 to replace both sets of breakers but he likes us and we like him (he’s from Macadonia/Yugoslavia) and we hit it off right away! So he told us that he will replace the other set of breakers for $800 ( on the side… as long as we don’t report him!!) and we can ‘tip’ him whatever we want! We’re thinking $2000 for the whole job! We even invited him to our Super Bowl party tomorrow! LOL!
So we now have full power and Mrs S doesn’t have to cook by the light of an oil lamp!!
Darn!! I forgot pics!! Maybe on Tuesday!
