    Totally agree with you. my house in Airports Heights area didn't have power from last night 8 PM to this afternoon about 1:30 PM. There was NO severe weither condition. Something went wrong in NL Power..

    I think the NL power crews do a great job, out in all kinds of weather. But I have to agree last night was really strange, it was windy , but no worse then we have had before. There wasn't even a wind warning mentioned on the weather network or environment Canada's website. The only warning was on NTV at 6 and that was the 1st I heard of it. Aside from that , it really was a large area affected , reports of power flickering off and on as far out as Whitbourne.

    We lost power here at 7, just as later dinner was started. And it was gone for 6 hours before it flickered back, but just for 10 minutes and down she went again. The weather wasn't all that bad..so I don't get WHY these outages happen? all the way from Stavanger right up to Foxtrap?! REALLY? Just no need! Why? Seriously It was only 50 KM winds most of the night, and not as bad as it's being said on here. It wasn't wind or stormy conditions, it's the lack of update power lines and/or NL Power techs who drag their buts! I had two neighbors with babies on formula coming to my home asking to use my bbq to heat their baby's bottles. There was just no need to have a power outage THAT long over a bit of wind!! And it's very cold out there too, so suffice to say, it's got pretty cold inside as well. FIX THE POWERLINES, UPDATE THEM. Stop spending the provinces money on useless new million dollar buildings go up every which way and million dollar soccer fields, such as the one in Topsail. And start paying attention to the real issues of Newfoundland! Like roads, power lines/wiring, DRUG PROGRAMS for adult addicts. etc etc I can go with what this Province is lacking as of later, but I digress. I recently just moved back here after spending 14 years in Ontario, and I MUST say, this place has gone to the dogs. And I cannot wait to go back to Ontario.
