DWP to the Rescue

The unruly and weakening winds of last week made it easier for the lighter winds and rains of this week to cause more power outage havoc. All morning, our grid flickered on and off with teases of energy consumption. Finally, it just gave up -- not a surprise at all.

Not too long after, a group of six trucks worked its way up the street returning electricity fast and moving on to the next spot. DWP was thankful that we were thanking them for the job they do. If you see them out today, say hi and thank them.
