I was thinking that you'd be right in line. Fingers crossed!
As well as the locust trees, is there much good wood in your house? ;-)

I hate that. Can't you change companies? We privatised our electricity and I have stuck with the group who were formerly public owned and they're solid. Had a loss of power in a storm earlier this year when the wind (weirdly) spilt a tall conifer in half and that half feel on the main line feeding power to my place and they sorted it pretty quickly given that they were inundated with calls.
No doubt the fact that the power pole was "arcing and sparking" in the rain helped speed things along - not a comforting sight to see near your home.
