Power Failure Excitement #WordlessWednesday

Yesterday was the afternoon the power went out on my block and a neighborhood toddler's day was made.

About 2:30 pm yesterday, a cold front came through and the wind suddenly was gusting strongly.  I heard a "bang" in the distance and our power went out.

Although our electric utility's website insisted we didn't have power outages in our area, we obviously did (and a neighbor's electricity was also out) so I reported it.  Perhaps 10 minutes later two trucks arrived.

The other neighbor without power has a young son, and he was so taken by the trucks.  One of the utility workers allowed the boy's father to hold the son. The worker opened the cab and allowed the father to hold his son so he could see all the controls.  I'm sure it made the little boy's day.

It was so sweet to watch. (This picture was taken a few minutes after - they were on the other side of the truck.)

Joining Sandee at Comedy Plus for a sweet #WordlessWednesday.


  1. ...little boys and BIG boys love their trucks.

  2. Oh fun for the little one. I do love it when they show up and take care of the issues right away.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥

  3. aarrgh! Can you believe that my first thought was social distancing? What is happening to me? LOL.
    We had an outage several weeks back for several hours. My neighbor who does nothing to maintain his yard full of weeds and weedy trees had a tree break in half, hit the utility boxes hidden underneath all the mess and knocked everyone out. I am sure the crews who woke me up at one in the morning were not happy having to cut through the mess to fix the boxes.

  4. Oh, toddlers and trucks! My oldest son would stand looking out the front window on trash day and wave to the garbage man, who always waved back! I'll have to ask him if he remembers that.

  5. Glad your power outage got fixed right away.

  6. Oh, how fun. At least that gave the boy something to look at since presumably his screens were out.

  7. Those trucks look exciting! Fun indeed for the lil boy..
