These Men Are Your Heroes
...especially if you live in Massachusetts, it's mid-December and you have no electricity for close to 12 hours.
Ice storms broke trees here in Metrowest (central Massachusetts), which in turn took out several transformers and, even worse, several grids. Service is spotty. We got our power back just an hour ago, while the convenience store down the street is still dark and ringing up purchases on a calculator.
So hats off to the many linemen who had to get out of bed at 4:30 this morning to battle a blackout, braving horrible weather and putting themselves in danger.
I'm curious if any of my other readers had experienced blackouts of their own.
