Yesterday’s storm knocked out power to approximately 40,000 homes in the BGE service area. According to this story by Erica Green in The Sun, over “36,000 customers had power restored since BGE began responding to the storm around 1:30 p.m. Saturday.”
We were among those who lost power yesterday afternoon around 4:00 PM. I decided to let Bare Bones cook dinner and by the time we got back home with dinner at little after six, the power had been restored.
The folks living along
Church Road in Ellicott City have had to wait a little longer though. When Peanut and I passed by today around 3:00 PM, they hadn’t even started working on these downed lines. I'm sure the crews have been a little busy.
