I believe that all residents of 70 ave were thankfully for an electric repair crew from Austin Texas showed up on Thursday afternoon to replace utility poles, wires and connections to all our homes. Power was restored at about 7 pm Friday night. Thanks to this crew for working tirelessly and getting us back to almost normal
