While we were gone for Christmas, Lansing got a horrible ice storm that knocked out power to 40% of Board of Water and Light’s customers, some for up to 11 days in cold temperatures. Somehow our house was spared, while people who live across the street were not.
In our neighborhood, the power company (a private one; Consumer’s Energy, not the Lansing Board of Water and Light) came around and spraypainted trees that need to be trimmed. They have yet to actually touch these trees,weeks later. Newsflash guys: you can’t just trim trees every decade after a storm. Upkeep!
