Warm Beer

Found Keith's place without power this week. Seemed to have been out a while, there was no water pressure at all and the fridge was warm. After checking a few things I found the power meter (which is a newer style with digital display) had no display. I called PGE and while chatting with them found the cause at the power pole. The high voltage connection to the transformer... well... fell out. It's just a little old it seems. The transformer supplies only Keith's house so nobody else had reported a power outage.
It wasn't a busy day for power crews, so these guys were out within an hour.
All put back together, and the beer is saved!

Sorry you had the job of cleaning up the fridge. I was planning on doing that this time we come up.
We plan on being there about noonish on Thurs.
