Last weekend was a real nightmare. I actually came back to the beach household from my place of work on Wednesday night, plus the entire household was pitch black. No other neighbors on the street seemed to be having issues with their power, so I knew the trouble was rather significant. I called the power business, who confirmed no outages in our area… They made the suggestion that I contact an electrician. I did not actually know who to call, because I just moved to St. Petersburg, Florida about a week ago. I never had issues at all like this in the past, plus I did not recognize what to do. I searched through several St. Petersburg newspapers plus advertisements, until I was able to locate a licensed electrician in St. Petersburg. I even found a licensed electrician who easily offered to look into the issue with a free estimate. I was thrilled about the free estimate, because I did not truly have any idea what was wrong with the electricity. The St. Petersburg electrician had emergency services available, plus they instantly dispatched a specialist to our household. After 4 hours, the power was finally restored to our household. The St. Petersburg electrician was especially knowledgeable, capable, plus really friendly. They even provided temporary lighting, while they ran tests on the power for our place. My kids even managed to complete all of their school work, while the licensed electrician looked after our needs. Thank goodness St. Petersburg has a wonderful home guide magazine, because it totally came in handy. I even found a coupon for $100 off our repair bill. When I found out the total bill was over $1,000, I was delighted to have that coupon in my hand, and the bunch of us needed a modern electric box.
