Single Status Update

See all updates by sandrewn

  1. -7 F, outside right now. One of my tenants told me she had no heat in her apartment and that the stove did not work. I soon found there was nothing that uses 240 volts working in the house (triplex). I called the power company, they said not their problem and to call an electrician. Several electricians later, I found one who would be here in 1 to 2 hrs. All the others were booked solid till late tonight or tomorrow morning. I then noticed a power company line truck out front on the street. So I went out to ask them questions. Turns out that it is a power company transformer that blew and they are working on the problem. That I should cancel my call to the electrician as they were taking care of it. I cancelled the electrician and we are patiently awaiting the return of the power and eventual heat.


    When the heat has been restored, I will do the updates. I will not try to type wearing my gloves, sorry.

      I’m sending you warm thoughts, sandrewn and crossed my fingers your power and heat will be back in good working order  soon.

      If Canada’s power companies are like the US, the reps are usually not a help @Ivor Slipper.

      I didn’t realize PG&E (Pacific Gas & Electric) provided Customer Service support to other utility companies. (PG&E is the one that kept insisting that they weren’t at fault for the North Bay fires, but went silent after a report was leaked that blamed them for poor maintenance of their equipment. My lovely utility company.)  :-/
