    2 pm City Light was driving around this same area looking for detection of a problem.  I had talked with them .  Guess the problem surfaced.  2 bangs.  Hopefully they get the power restored.  Need the power back on.

      The map also shows a “planned work” outage under way all day affecting 18 customers near 4th/Olson.

      There was a utility crew working at Cambridge and 17th/Delridge when I walked by about an hour ago.

    Same City Light truck driving back and forth on 11th. 3 times in the last 20 minutes.  That same truck took out a Comcast cable to a house across the street about 2pm.  Now they have a lookout sitting in back watching the wires.

    I walked out of my house just as the high voltage line they were working on contacted the regular, lower power line. The worker standing there said they “blew a fuse and would have it back on soon.”

    Power back on at 532 pm on 11th Ave.  City Light truck went by looking at transformers.

    I heard that bang! My dog and I  wondered what it was because our power stayed on the whole time. Now I know!

    There have been too many SCL inadvertent wire contacts lately. I suspect the problem is that retiring SCL blue-collar workers cannot be easily replaced .

    Glad we live on “Lucky” 13th Avenue!
