Sometime after midnight last night my neighborhood lost electricity. Around 9 o'clock this morning about a dozen trucks and about 2 dozen men wearing thick, yellow rubber boots appeared and started working. A manhole housing several high voltage cables on our front yard quickly became one of the focal points of their activities.
The men wearing thick, yellow rubber boots worked all day. Finally, around 8:40 this evening just as it was starting to get dark in the house, we were endowed with power again.
What would we do without electricity?
