    Very sorry… I would be happy to replace some plants in your collection, but hopefully that isn't necessary.

    Jcal,
    Sorry to hear of your recent predicament. Hopefully it will be repaired soon, and you can get everything back on track.

    We too just had our own minor power outage. Our power is delivered to our meter, underground from the transformer on the pole and transmission lines running above the road in front of our property. For some reason, when they were initially installed, the underground wires were a few feet short of our meter pedestal, also containing the main breakers. A few years ago, one of those splices had gotten infiltrated with moisture and corroded until it failed. It took them a few hours to locate the fault and replace the failed splice with a new splice. Now, just last week the other hot legs' splice had failed in the same manner, and just a few inches from the splice that had already been repaired. It took nearly six hours for them to locate the fault, then dig to access it, and repair it.

    It had likely been in the process of failing, for some time. I had thought our refrigerator was beginning to fail. Its ability to maintain proper temperature, especially in the freezer compartment, was sporadic. Now that the failing splice has been repaired, the refrigerator is working fine, again. In hindsight I should have tested the actual voltage being delivered to the refrigerator, then I might have avoided a six hour outage, and possible damage to our electrical appliances.

    How is everything going up there, looked out my window this morning to a clear frozen driveway. I recall back when we lived in OK we were without power for about a week in a large city, I don't recall losing any plants but we are further south. A lot of the plants are tougher than we give them credit for.

    Let me know if you want replacements of anything I've sent you or you have sent me.
