Power's back, the tree crews have been moved (I suspect) onto tree clearing in other parts of the state--and this morning we got a phone call from the electric company. Oh dear, I thought.
she seemed sooo happy to find me at home, and then told me there was a 'slight problem' with our bill this month, because of the storm. The automatic meters apparently had been damaged by the storm, and our bill was a "little bit higher than it was supposed to be." Pause. "Quite a bit higher." Pause.
"Actually it's "$162...thousand". I started laughing at that...
She said it would probably be arriving today or tomoroow, and we did NOT have to pay it ("oh good") and a corrected bill would be in the mail by next week.
I did the math on that, and it figures out to exactly 180 years of phone service at our current bill average.
