Power – It’s a good thing

As many people have blogged about in the past few days, the Seattle area got slammed with a massive windstorm last Thursday. Winds peaked out at 69mph at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, and were clocked at 118mph near Mt. Rainier.

We lost power at 5:51pm that night. I called [PSE](http://www.pse.com/) and was told we were the first ones to call with an outage report. 6 days, 12 hours, and 57 minutes later, we got power back this morning at 6:48am.

Kudos to all the linesmen and power crews that have been working around the clock to bring electricity back online.

What’s the most impressive is that you don’t realize just how dependent on electricity you are until you go without for more than a day or two.
