Power gone in Summerfield Township.

Went somewhere, not sure where.  No storms, just a little wind.  We are on standby and have been for a while now.

Everywhere i look there seems to be an over abundance of trees growing up and over power lines.  I guess they figure it's cheaper to send out crews to fix rather than cut all the trees and trash growing near power lines.

Exactly 2 hours.  I was out back cutting hay when it came back on.  No biggie with us as we have standby running on propane and both bottles are full (800 gallons), that is enough for 60 days continuous running.  It was trees.

DTE was getting pretty good about trimming but seems to have put that on the back burner lately.

Maybe some of local crew down in the Carolinas.

Could be, not sure.  You'd think that a utility company would sequester the proper amount of personnel for local issues though.

I see there is a huge portable unit in Deerfield at the substation, hooked up, but that is Consumers and we have DTE.
