I'd sure hate to be the guy that caused this one.

I had a couple of calls late last night from South Orange County ...."My power's off, can you get here right away?" rolleyes bash Apparently they didn't realize the extent of the problem.

Yup, got our power back on at 1:35am, but we were running on generator for 10 hours. We were the only ones in our small valley with power though.

Looks like some got their power back as soon as 8:00pm and others as late as 3:30am.

Electure, tell them your Toyota Prius (or is it Chevy Volt?) service truck is down for the time being ...
