Expensive wind

Hillsborough, NC(Zone 7b)

Today it was very windy in the Piedmont of NC

The wind blew down a tree .....and the tree took down an electric pole.....the electrical sparking caught the woods on fire ....and out went the electric for a long time.

Burning up a few hours of propane and a few bucks too!!

Rocky Mount, VA(Zone 7a)

Sorry about the power interruption (and the delay in noticing this post)! Hopefully, all is well by now. at least the resulting fire caused no more than a power outage. BEEN THERE! Had a downed power line from the winds start a fire a few years back. Scary, to say the least, best reason I know of to have a cell phone (to call in the trouble). Hope Shoe was not affected as he is close to your area.

Take Care.
