Power Outages Continue to Affect Austinites Following Winter Storm

It’s safe to say that the memory of February’s winter storm has faded, but one aspect of the event is still alive: Power Outages.

You may have noticed your electricity flickering at some point over the last week. If so, you aren’t alone. Austin’s Zilker neighborhood experienced two rather widespread outages that occurred late Thursday morning and Sunday night.

The first of those outages lasted for over an hour and came with no warning. Sunday’s loss of power was also a surprise (more accurately a shock) to Austin Energy customers in the neighborhood.

Having recently lost power myself I can say that it was an unwelcome flashback to a time I would like to forget.
So my question to you is: have you lost power again since the winter storm? If so, what was the first thing that went through your head when the lights shut off?
