Ever since the power went off Friday, one line I’ve heard over and over and over is, “Where are the AEP trucks?”
Some people have seen one or two here and there. Crews have been working, no doubt, because the local grid is slowly being repaired. But I’ve also heard from many people who have seen no bucket trucks whatsoever.
One of those is my friend Paul Giordano, who lives in Raleigh Court’s Center Hill neighborhood as still has no power. But Tuesday evening, he discovered the bucket-truck mother lode.
“They’re on Colonial Avenue, parked across the street from Fresh Market!” he exclaimed.
His wife Robin took this picture and sent it to me.
Even linemen need to eat, of course, so let we should assume what — they they were on a dinner break? Paul thinks perhaps they were gassing up on coffee at Starbucks ahead of a long night of work.
At least, that is one of his fervent hopes. The other is that they’re heading his way, to Center Hill.
