Natural Disasters and Power Outages - We, Canadians, help our American cousins and they help us.
I have been reading some of the posts about the recent power outages, in the US. I understand that many people are still without power. My associate just told me, this morning, that emergency crews have been formed by the Nova Scotia Power Corporation. Her son was given a few hours notice that he was part of a crew that was being sent to Georgia. They arrived there yesterday.
A few years ago there was a terrible ice storm in Quebec, power crews from neighbouring US states, mobilized to help. Local power companies do not have the resources to handle everything that mother nature throws at us. It's comforting to know that we are willing and able to help each other, at times like this.
I wish all those repair crews speedy success in restoring power.
