Yesterday around noon my power went out. I thought I must have overloaded the system. So I went down to the basement to check the breakers and all of them were in the right places. So I put on my jacket and grabbed my keys and checked the corner and sure enough the traffic lights were out. My whole neighborhood was without power. Most of my neighbors had already called Philadelphia Electric (PECO) and got the time of 215pm is when our power was to go back on. The power came back on at a few minutes after one. The big thing is that as neighbors (D’s and R’s) we used our resources and helped each other out.
