I woke up today to find out I was experiencing my first power outage. Apparently there were a couple hundred people without power in my area, there were about 130,000 customers without power in the state according to Xcel Energy during the early hours of the after math of the storm. I heard lots of loud thunder, at some point so loud that I had to cover my ears, raining hard, and strong winds. People in Hudson, Wisconsin were also affected by the thunderstorms. I did not see any damage on the power lines serving my neighborhood but im sure there was a break somewhere on the line.
Power right now at my house has been restored along with my neighborhood and other areas that were out. I have to say that Xcel does a pretty good job keeping the power on here and in my area.
