Power outage season

Thursday, October 27, 2022

Well, it's that time again. With heat and drought we had forgotten about wind and rain and falling tree branches.

We have had a lot of power outages this year but they are truly painful in cold weather.

We've had two power outages in three days. The first one was Tuesday October 25, 2022. It apparently started at 6pm east of Aurora Village and kicked out two circuits down the line.

Those close to Aurora Village were in the dark for about an hour and a half. The neighborhoods to the east were out for five hours, with power restored at midnight.

Then on Thursday, October 27, 2022 an outage affecting Shoreline and North Seattle knocked out power to 2600 customers. It was reported just before 8am.

I didn't see the notice until it had been resolved. In the future, I'd be happy if someone would take a screenshot of the outage map and email it to me Editor@ShorelineAreaNews.com

And all of you in Lake Forest Park with your generators, share your wisdom and send information with your recommendations for generators - types, power sources, companies.

Start time 7:12am. 1717 Shoreline customers. Cause not listed.
Estimated restoration time 11am. October 27, 2022

Thank you Katie for sending in the power out map screenshot! It was a huge part of Shoreline and all on the west side of Aurora. And all apparently from the same unnamed cause.

We found out 5 years ago that it is possible to install a generator that will run on natural gas. If you have a natural gas hook-up to your home, you can have a generator without worrying about availability of gasoline, old gas that has deteriorated, power outages at service stations, being able to drive to a service station, etc. And after we installed our generator, the longest power outage we've had was about an hour. We jinxed those 8-hour outages LFP is famous for!
