i AM STILL reading about many people on the East coast who are without power as a result of the storm Sandy. Once in 1956, we were without power as a result of an ice storm. Keeping warm ws the biggest problem--we had some kerosene lamps for light. As the house gets colder and colder, you realize that this could go on for a long time and get the blankets out for the kids. At the end of three days,
consumers had us back on again. Another time the lights went out at night. Not a light was on in all of Saugatuck. As Mayor of the village, I called Consumers at their headquarters in Kalamazoo and informed them this was a matter of puplic safety. This did not seem to register with them and we had to wait some time before power was restored. I realize Consumers has a large area of customers to cover, but I'm glad i am now hooked up to the Hollsnd BPW. Since moving to our present location, we have had only one power outage in twelve yuears.
RIGHT ON HOLLAND BPW!!!
