Power Outtage in Reston - Been out since 3am Last Night

South Reston just got power back 4pm. The power has been out since 3am last night. Power company said reason was a pole down.

Personally I think it was a Dallas fan. Power came back on right after the Redskins game!

Don't worry, you didn't miss much of a game.

So was it this morning that it went out? Or Friday night overnight?

I love the power around here, as it only takes one erratic driving jack ass to ruin it for everyone.

There's been times where only half my street would go out, yet other times it would be all of one section of Reston, and sometimes the whole area.

Funny thing is, I've watched transformers sparking all over the place during Tropical Storms and Hurricanes, lighting up the sky with a bright green glow, yet the power never went out. Now take a nice, quiet evening, and some sob driving on a binge assassinates a pole, and everything goes black.

Natural Gas Generator with a whole-house battery backup. When the power goes out, the batteries keep the power going until the NG generator kicks in.

Never even see a flicker when there's an outage.

The function of conservatives is not to meet every liberal program or scheme with a denunciation or a destructive counterscheme, but rather to weigh its advantages and defects, supporting the first and challenging the second. A declaration of ideological warfare against liberalism is by its nature profoundly unconservative. It meets perceived radicalism with a counterradicalism of its own.

There was some kind of car accident on Lawyers Rd across from St. John Neumann Church. There were a bunch of trucks out there working all day yesterday.

looks like they need to add a special lane for church-goers like they did for bicyclists
