It's a scary moment when in the middle of an ice or thunder storm, your lights start to flicker ... then suddenly go out. Pitch black. No lights anywhere. No hum of the refrigerator. No whoosh of warm or cool air circulating through the ductwork. No red-glowing reminder of the correct time. It's as though someone unplugged your entire house. Yep, your power is definitely out. And most likely it's the same story for all your neighbors.
