Power crews work around the clock to restore electricity
Puget Sound Energy crews working to restore power say they haven't slept much. On Tuesday afternoon, Rob Brackman, who was redirecting traffic while other workers strung new power lines near Dash Point Road and Redondo Way, said he'd had just 15 hours of sleep since Friday morning. But, he says he's been overwhelmed by the kindness of strangers.
"We get a lot of joyous people when we get into their neighborhood. They're so happy to see us. People have been bringing us coffee and donuts. It's been very nice," he said.
Brackman said the goal is to have all customers back on line by Wednesday afternoon.
Then he turned to me and asked, "What day is it, anyway?"
