That must be it, I don’t know exactly what cut off the power but it must have taken the phones out too. This is the 1st time the land lines or rotary phone didn’t work for us when the power went out. At least it was winter. When after a few hours the power company didn’t have a projection for when it would be fixed, we figured it would be a longer duration event, especially since it was still snowing, and we proceeded to empty the refrigerators/freezers into coolers and put them out in the snow. Not an option in the summer. In doing so we tossed some old stuff being we don’t often come to clean them out.
