Wonder how many are without power due to the township worker who backed his truck into a telephone pole and blew the transformer. If it wasn't for him we would have power.

Power has been out since Monday evening....and PECO estimates it will be stored earliest is 11PM on Saturday Night. Whenever a minor storms hit, we are always out of power (Probably the 6th-8th time in 2 years)....i've asked PECO to watch the trees in my neighbors yard but they said they can't do anything about it...not sure if that also played a role in the power outage this time....
