We got a brand new fancy digital electric meter !!! Even though it was raining, the guy rang the doorbell, and instructed me to turn off the computer. He installed the new digital meter in seconds! I was so excited, and knew Bob would be, too. This new meter talks to the company every 15 minutes. amazing. And Bob designed the map on the website.
When your husband works for the power company, you learn all about power lines, poles, transformers, etc. And these new meters are getting a lot of bad, bad press. I did not think we'd be getting ours so soon! The best feature is that if you lose power, the meter sends out one last dying gasp---so they know to come fix your loss before you can even get to a working phone and report it. (say, the middle of the night, and you are sleeping)
