"Snapped liked matchsticks"
Today my parents are without hydro as the hydro poles on their road, specifically the poles going up the hill to the south of their house, "snapped like matchsticks". I spoke to my mom this morning and the road is closed as the poles are laying on the road. The power went out about midnight last night. The pole in their yard did not fall down, but the group to the south of them did fall down. Pretty impressive the power of mother nature. I checked the hydro website for them to see when their hydro was to be restored and it said by noon today. However, my mom says no one has even come to work on the poles, so this is unlikely.
