That Man of Mine!

This is Frank ... This is Frank, mad.

Gone Mad? He decided to sit out in front of the house with a "HELP" sign and wave it at Duke Energy and Pike trucks until one stopped. Guess what? It worked. He just called to say that one of the guys stopped and promised to go across the street and talk to the Duke Engineers about getting our transformer fixed. It seems we are on an end line and the box blew, but they all thought our problem was fixed when 6 poles were replaced and trees were removed across the street at Grimesdale. WRONG! Last night they had again reported us as "power restored." We spent 45 minutes on the phone with a supervisor last night at midnight trying to convince them that we were, in fact, still in the dark. Looks like all that talking did nothing ... as silly as I thought the sign was ... it did work. Sometimes people just need pictures!
