    Hey Jay,

    Thanks for letting us know. I had a query in so I appreciate the heads up. Hope your power is back on soon.

    All the best. :thumb

    I'm not far from DMC. Our power went out at 1:30am but came back around 6:30am. Pretty good storm.

    Every night before I go to bed I take the dogs out in the yard to patrol the perimeter and do their business. Last night, the storm was hitting us pretty hard (heavy rain, thunder) when I opened the front door and called the dogs. They both went bounding out like usual, got about 10 feet out into the yard, then they both pulled a U-turn and scampered back inside. Never saw them do that before.

    It looks like they are replacing a bunch of power poles as I keep seeing trucks with power polls driving down the side road next to us which is closed. Power company is estimating we will have power Saturday at 6 am

    Just checked Puget Sound Energy's website and they say they had 400,000 customers lose power Wednesday morning and now 23,000 still in the dark. Apparently, hundreds of power lines taken out by trees that came down in the storm.
