Infrastructure Fails: Blackout Hits

On February 3rd, a pole-mounted transformer (or two) blew and, by large, the town was in darkness. For many hours. Workmen got right to work repairing the damage. Television and refrigeration and street light and all the other electrical appliances so integral to our life were again working.
Rates went up on this month's bill. A co-incident of significance or preview of things to come? Say what you will, but this is a case of Stupendously Bad Timing (for a rate change). They could have waited until a month with less useage? Guess not! Bet they wonder why they have such bad PR!
