When we got back late this afternoon from Bethany’s Birthday Bash we had no power. We sat on the porch talking and finally after it was already dark the power came on and ours only stayed on for about a minute. I knew we had a problem when every house on the block had lights except ours.
My first call was to Patricia who said she would get Serrano or his brother to come over and check it out for us. In the meantime my neighbor Paola walked by and I told her No Luz, she talked to her husband Pilly and he talked to his brother David and we soon had a street filled with neighbors discussing the problem with our lights. Paola was making a joke about us not paying our bill and we both decided it was Joe’s fault and just giggled about it. David started to pull on the electric lines that are hanging precariously from the pole down to our electric meter (which still does not work and I requested a new meter back in early October but that is another post). He felt that the one cable was not connected, I handed them my phone and had them tell Patricia so that the guys could come over with the right equipment.
Within 10 minutes Sarrano and his brother drove up with a huge ladder, they reconnected the cable and we had lights. Tomorrow they will return with new cable and all the tubing to replace the existing cable and secure it to the outside of our home.
If we were back in the states this would need the electric company, here if there is a problem you get your neighbors together and someone will figure out how to take care of it. Just love this country and our neighborhood! Thanks guys!
