Our electricity is fixed! I am so happy! The electrician came over this afternoon and climbed up on our pole to fiddle around with things. We didn't know if he had been successful until the power came on around 7:00 and ours came on too!
The electrician mentioned to me that he hasn't had city power in his house for five years. A transformer blew out and the company didn't have any more. They still send a bill every month, though. The electrician was fortunately able to hook into a neighbor's supply. The neighbor had bought his own private transformer and charged a hefty fee to let others share it.
