111 Degrees and NO Power! Yikes.

As I was driving up to the office this morning from an early morning appointment I noticed that several intersection lights were not working. This was along Val Vista Road in Gilbert going north.  Most of these are very busy intersections. It was a bit scary at times as drivers were getting frustrated trying to make left turns. Now I see this local story: 

Today’s high temperature is expected to reach 111 degrees.

SRP spokeswoman Patty Garcia-Likens said the outage lasted 20 to 30 minutes, and affected about ten percent of the company’s 920,000 electric customers – in Tempe, Gilbert and parts of Phoenix.

Last summer we lost power for about 20 hours in my subdivision. We were new parents at the time with a 4 week old at home. It really freaked me out. It was a bit worrisome as the heat started to encapsulate us. We ended up going to a friends house to spend the night. SRP says it won’t happen again! Why even make that kind of commitment?
