A spectacular lightening strike at 10:00 pm last night resulted in an eight hour long power outage in Chevy Chase, lasting through early this morning. Power lines were down and on fire at East West Highway and Donnybrook.
Despite having no commercial power in our section of Rock Creek Forest, all RCN services (TV, Telephone and Internet) remained up and working during the entire outage.
Great job! Thanks to RCN line crews who make this possible. (and a shout out to Kohler Residential power backup systems)
