About 167 addresses lost power at about 1 pm on Saturday.  It wasn’t much of a burden.  The pig roast went on as planned.

The problem was supposed to be fixed by 5 pm, but there were complications.  They needed some special equipment. At about 6 pm 4 FPL trucks rolled down Camelia Drive and pulled into the big yard.

The men went right to work, and we lit candles and started dinner.  The job was suppose to be done by 8 pm, and that’s what happened.

We had company, and when the lights went on, there was a round of applause.

Thanks to FPL
