Our power lines our out—or rather down in our driveway along with the conduit that used to be attached to the rest of our house. mrw42 wrote up some questions. In particular:
The power lines to our house are down, and the conduit has been ripped off the side of our building. I called the electric company, and they said that we need to get an electrician to repair the conduit before they can reconnect the wires.
So, I have a few requests:
- Could anyone recommend an electrician north of Boston?
- We have two freezers (of the typical refrigerator/freezer size) full of stuff that would prefer not to be above freezing for any significant length of time. Does anyone have freezer space that we could use?
- Do you have somewhere that some or all of us could stay while we get this fixed? All of us includes
three adults and three kids (13, 11 and 2) these days. We also have two dogs and three cats, but we will
board them at a kennel if this is going to take a while.
- Have any of you experienced a similar situation? If so, do you have advice on what we should do? I'm
wondering, for example, whether we should do something to turn off the water so that our pipes don't freeze.
