Brown Out

Recommended Posts

I live in Pembroke Pines, just south of Ft. Lauderdale. The heat is horrid this summer, crap humidity.

 

The New York thing happened when some idiot at a power relay station in like Chicago or someplace grounded the power that was supposed to goto New York.

 

But, yeah, no A/C is a real bummer. I would die here without it.

It turns out that the power stepdown box behind my house shorted out. It unfortunately affected only 2 or 3 houses on my street.

 

 

The good news is that TXU electric thought that one of their Vice Presidents lived in my house so the electric guy said that he would "fix it right". :D

 

And within 30 minutes, everything was pretty much as good as new!

 

(My mother tried calling them herself 3 times but they said that they didn't know when they could help us.)

 

It just goes to show that they value their employees more than their customers. :(
