Gusdorf Rd, power outage last nigh/ early AM, and just now for about 1/2 hr. WHAT THE F**K'S GOING ON WITH ALL THE POWOR OUTAGES? 3 IN ONLY 2 DAYS?

Power still out this morning. Flickered on last night for 1-2 minutes a few times last night but that’s been it. Power seems to be on in the rest of the neighborhood.
