Temporary Power ...


This is what we lived with for approximately 4 1/2 days ...
due to a power outage from a massive destructive storm ...
that blew thru on Friday, July 20, 2012...
We were fortunate to have our refrigerators, freezers, water, for the duration ...
with no other damage done ...
Our Power was finally restored this morning ...

This is a quote from the Cranbrook Daily Townsmen :

 "At about 6:15 p.m. on Friday, July 20, a brief but destructive windstorm downed seemingly hundreds of trees, crushing cars, collapsing roofs and pulling down power lines. There are unconfirmed reports that winds reached 106 kilometres an hour.
 at the peak of its aftermath, power was out to 20,000 properties in Cranbrook, Kimberley and surrounding areas.
By Sunday afternoon, BC Hydro was on its third day of non-stop work to restore power to 3,800 properties that were still experiencing an outage."
