More Power Outages in 2019?

Yesterday was funny; as I was showing a house, with the power out, I watched people emerge from their houses to play in the yard, and neighbors talking to neighbors. If we could just silence the generators, maybe we should lose power more often. 🙂

Sure feels we’ve had more power outages this year.

First: Thank you, Dominion, for being so super-responsive. Truly.

I asked the folks at Dominion Power via Twitter (they are amazingly responsive, by the way):

They couldn’t provide that, but did for my home address (I live near Crozet Park). I bet the Old Trail side numbers would be a bit different, as they often lose power when we don’t, and vice-versa.
