A mostly-fresh start

Electricity, Part 2

Just got off the phone with Beth since I’m at work today, so the rest of the story is second hand.

Cuivre River showed up around 9 this morning and cut the power, the electrician showed up shortly after. After getting the old meter back off, the Cuivre River guy(s) noticed that the line heading into the house was pretty destroyed (charred, frayed, etc). They decided it was safer to replace almost everything. So now we’ve got a new meter bracket, new meter, and new lines going from the meter to my breaker box. They finished up and left a little after 11am. The electrician didn’t know how much the parts cost, so he’s going to send a bill in the next couple days.

Now we REALLY don’t have to worry about shitty power destroying anything this weekend.
