power outage!

March 31st, 2010 at 07:08 pm

I heard a loud noise about 6 pm and the power went out last night. I had purchased 2 heavy duty lanterns that I keep charged up, so I thought, no problem. Both of them would not work. Of course, I have candles which I used instead.
We decided to go out to eat dinner, hoping the power would be back on when we got home. But it wasn't!
I was more worried about the dogs than anything. They are little and they get cold easily. The older dog sleeps on a heating pad, but I am scared to let the puppy have one, cause she is still chewing.
Thanks to good insulation, the temperature in the house did not drop much and they got the power back on before 11 pm.
I got a check (dividend) from the Tim Horton company yesterday for $18 plus saved $6 using my Ingles advantage card.
I will add that to my challenge.

    That's good you got your power back on. Did you find out what caused it? A blown transformer?

    I think that must be what it was, cause I heard a loud popping noise and we had no storm.
