Power stayed on here also
Lots of people out though
I think the derecho that came through last year and did all that damage actually helped this situation.
It took out a lot of weak trees, limbs down and the subsequent outages, so all that damage last year wasn't added to today's totals. Derecho was what? 4 hours and knocked a million's power out?
I think you may be right about that. Also, it seems to have done wonders for BGE because they have *really* ramped up their PR, letting people know what all they have done to get ready and many who have lost power has had it restored already.
