MG&E power outages

Postby Beaver » Thu Dec 20, 2012 3:11 pm

This says 1,020 customers in Madison have lost power due to downed power lines from the heavy snow. That could be trouble if it lasts.

My lights have been flickering all night. We'll see what happens.

Same thing in the Bay Creek neighborhood. I just put MG&E's # by my phone just in case. I hope we don't lose power. Made note of where the flashlight, candles and matches are.

Two outages today on the near west side. One for an hour, another for 2-3 hours. It seems to be more common, these days, but not for the folks across the street! They're on the lucky side of the divide, apparently.

Same thing here. Kind of eerie. I hope the power stays on throughout the night!
