My rural electric co-op is top flight. If my service goes down they are out there day or night, no matter the weather, to get it up and running again. And I am happy to say that (so far!) this season I haven't had an interruption of more than two hours.
Nevertheless, when those wires get hung with thick ice and start hanging low, and then the wind comes up, you can't help but get a mite nervous. My genny will run the whole place, and I keep plenty of fuel on hand. Still, I never take for granted the wonderful juice that comes in to me from far away on those thin little overhead lines. Or the great folks that keep it coming.
