Tuesday evening, Aug. 4, a young hurricane bullied its way through the Bandon area pilfering our electric. I immediately called Southern Indiana Power and reported the outage. This was shortly before 6 p.m.
About 4 ½ hours later, nearly all the lights and appliances that had gone off at 6, alerted us the outage was over. As I was resetting the blinking clock on the microwave, it occurred to me that we had never doubted we would not get our electricity back.
I realized we had been taking our reliable electric service for granted.
