The local power company, West Oregon Electric was hard at work in our driveway as they prepare to update our lines on the poles that run from the grid to the farm.
We are too rural for big power companies, just not enough density of people to support all the costs associated with providing electricity. We belong to our local co-op, over the years we have had temperamental service, we used to comment about the electricity going out if someone sneezed. But the crews have worked diligently over the last ten years to upgrade poles, bury lines in susceptible storm areas, and logged line zones to make our power more dependable than ever.
We appreciate our power company and the job that they do to keep up up and running throughout all weather and through every season.
