It was out at my house yesterday from about 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM I assume while they worked on the new poles but no outages since then. 18 hours is ridiculous. Long enough to ruin what’s in your refrigerator and freezer. So sorry.

Went through that last year. Three weeks without a land line or Internet. Obviously have no Internet now but at least my idiot phone works. And my cell phone (which I didn't have last year. Now I'm going out for a ride to charge the cell phone. Hijole.

Mine just came back on and I'm charging everything I own... including the new 5000 maH back up battery that I bought last night. I live on San Mateo.
It is one thing to lose everything in your own freezer but I truly sympathize with Mom's... and really really hope that they had back up chest freezers. A chest freezer can keep food frozen solid for 48 hours.
I was just told by my neighbour that a transformer burned out... and they had to go to Guadalajara to get another one. DUH!

I took this pic this morning with my cell phone...

Cora is saying "It's OK Ginny, the fans will come back on soon... I hope"

My electricity has gone out so many times in the past few months that I now know how to reset the clock on my microwave from memory.

Glad you got your power back. CFE blows chunks this year.

Where I live in San Juan Cosala the electricity has been off 8 times so far this month. I'm a whiz now at resetting clocks on my microwave and radio.

Cora has the right idea. Sleep. I get really twitchy when the power goes out after being without for 3 months in my previous life post-hurricane Marilyn. I get lulled into a false sense of security until the next outage and then kick myself for not being better prepared.
