A near blizzard in Prescott Az today
Our late winter storm came in as forecasted. We have significant snow on the ground. March lives up to its reputation as the snowiest month. I will be out taking photos later today.
We had a major power failure last night, 8:45 to a little after midnight. We always have flashlights close at hand: power fails, flashlights on. So we went to bed in the dark – that’s normal, right? When the power came back, the lights we left switched on came up and woke us.
From the Daily Courier:
All four feeders at the Arizona Public Service substation on Granite Street failed for unknown reasons at about 8:45 p.m. Saturday night, blacking out an unknown number of customers in downtown Prescott, APS spokesman Matt Meierbachtol said.
“We don’t know what happened,” he said. “We have troublemen at the substation investigating. We will restore power as soon as we can.”
A refreshingly honest spokesman. I can tell you that the area around the high school was in total darkness.
