No Power in Field Park of Western Springs

I was out having a burger at Culvers and left too late. Got caught in the storm and was shocked at all the damage in Field Park. Major trees down on Gilbert and when I turned onto 41st Street the Electrical pole had flames shooting out of it. Needless to say there was no power when I got home, just a scared Shih-tzu!

  1. Lots of damage to the trees. Linda - look in your back yard to the northeast - several house down (on the Gilbert side of the block), in a backyard there is a big branch in the power wires - a good wind will pull the lines down.

  3. And now ComEd is "estimating" a 10 p.m. restoration time. They've been extending the time every four hours all day today. I'd say we will probably be one of the last areas to get power back - not until tomorrow evening or even not until Saturday. That is beyond the time window for even never-opened freezers and refrigerators. Lotsa spoiled food. Go ComEd!

  4. I've been proven right. ComEd, on both its website and telephone message, says restoration now forecast for 11:59 p.m. on June 24th. Yet the west side of Harvey got it back last night. What gives? Looks like we'll be lucky to have it restored before next Monday - almost a full week from when it went out. That is unacceptable. Does ANYONE know what ComEd is up to?
