|You have to stop and wonder where this money from the 9% or so increase in the power bills is going. |
I have never seen 90k winds and a couple cm of snow knock out power for over 30 hours, and more in other areas. I can understand earlier in the week right after the high winds hit, yeah lose power for a while...But the outage on Christmas eve? I don't understand. In Eastern passage I was one of 18 homes without power Christmas Eve morning until Christmas day afternoon. the homes behind us had power, the people on our same street had it too. We were calling in and they said it was restored. I never saw a single truck the entire time it was out. Our community had power at about 6pm Christmas Eve, why didn't our 18 homes have it then too?
I have spent weeks without power years ago on account of a much much much more severe storm in newfoundland, that was understandable. A few snow flakes and "salt deteroiation" is a lame excuse for a poor maintance schedule.
I bet there was no executives from Nova Scotia Power without light those nights.
Thank you very much NSP.
