    So when will the dead tree at the NE corner of 12th and Eads finally fall?

    I’d be a lot more forgiving of this outage and the crews’ efforts to restore power if I hadn’t gotten a year’s worth of lip about trimming a couple dead branches in front of our house. Jesus Christ an inch of snow or a windy day are all it takes to take out power-secure the infrastructure please.

    There was a loud boom in ballston in the early afternoon and it knocked my fios out for a few hours. did wonders for my workday

    Poor Pacers. 🙁

    Sal….still no power. How can a fallen tree knock out power for over 15 hours and counting. Dominion is fumbling this one.
