The greatest thing about the power going out is that the back up generator took over after about 3-5 seconds and he went right back into bed without worrying about it. That power outage lasted until 8:45 AM the following day. The coffee was hot and ready and the tap and toilet water flowed freely, plus the TV and telephone (landline) worked. The cable didn't go out at all. (this time)
The next day we saw that a tree had fallen across our dirt road, downing the wires. The power company must have cut it up unblocking the road and repaired the line.
All is good here! Since July 2015! Generator Story
