Last weekend was a total nightmare.
I came home from work on Friday evening, and the entire house was pitch black.
No other neighbors on the street seemed to be having trouble with their power, so I knew the trouble was significant. I call the power company, who confirmed no outages in our area. They suggested that I contact an electrician. I didn’t know who to call, because I just moved to St Petersburg, Florida, a month ago. I never had trouble like this in the past, and I didn’t know what to do. I searched through several different St Petersburg newspapers and advertisements, until I found a licensed electrician in St Petersburg. I even found a licensed electrician who offered to look into the issue with a free estimate. I was excited about the free estimate, because I didn’t really have any idea what was wrong with the electricity. The St. Petersburg electrician had emergency services available, and they immediately dispatched a technician to my residence. After 4 hours, the power was finally restored to my residence. The St. Petersburg electrician was knowledgeable, capable, and very friendly. They even provided temporary lighting, while they worked on getting power to the entire place. My kids managed to complete all of their school work, while the licensed electrician cared for our needs. Thank goodness St. Petersburg has a home guide magazine, because it sure came in handy. I even found a coupon for $100 off my service bill. When I found out the total bill was over $1,000, I was happy to have that coupon in my hand. We needed a brand new electric box.
