molovinsky on allentown has just gotten back on line, after about 13 hours of another PPL outage. Customers have come to expect disrupted service when wind reaches beyond 6 miles per hour. Although the PPL automated message system first reported that power would be restored by 8:00pm last evening, the message was then changed to 7:00am this morning. As a veteran of these power interruptions, let me translate. A tree or branch fell on a line, and the contracted tree service doesn't start work until daylight. One would think that after all the recent outages, the utility might have considered an in-house tree service. According to an article in The Morning Call, PPL showed some favoritism in 2011, dispatching crews to special customers. We know that I'm not one of them.
