Was working over at a guys place and the wife decided to call me. She said the power went out and I was thinking "What next". With the wind chill being around -40 F it don't take long to cool off the old corn crib, I mean the house. Wouldn't have been so bad to go back home and fire up the generator, but it was at my dads 50 miles away. So I call up my dad, who was still awake luckily, told him I needed the generator and made arrangements to meet me part way. Got backhome got everthing up and running and started heading back over to the guys place again (the trailer had an appointment at 9:00 this morning) to finish the trailer up. Going down the driveway I looked over and seen that the neighbors yardlight was on, looked back and sure enough the powers back on. Go back home turn everything off and switch it back to primary power. This all started about 10:30 and the power came back on at 1:20 plenty long with no heat.
What really gets me aggitated is since we moved out to the farm the power has gone off atleast 10+ times a year. Not for afew minutes, I'm talking hours and on a few occasions its been off for days. Growing up I don't ever remember the power going off anywheres near that many times (other than when storms went through). Anyways I'm done with my little rant.
Anyone else have issues with the power going off frequently?
