Last week I noticed some flags & spray painted markers on the median between the sidewalk and street (and some on our back yard) near the house.

I was very curious as to what they were for … but I constantly forgot to actually call the village about it.

Well, I finally called today … Hoffman Estates Public Works didn’t know anything about it (they were very nice, btw, something I’ve been becoming more and more appreciative of … I try to thank the person who’s been helpful whenever possible). They suggested I call J.U.L.I.E. about it.

I called the 800 number and there was no way to inquire about it … but voice reponse system told me to call another number (in a/c 815).

So I called the number and talked to another nice person who looked up the information (had to go back a few weeks to find it)

It turns out that ComEd is fixing a “Primary Cable Fault”.

Ok, issue resolved. I noticed they actually started digging and saw the ComEd truck out there today.

Sure would have been nice if they had put a note on the door to let me know what was going on.

Additionally, it would have been good if J.U.L.I.E. had an online inquiry system so I wouldn’t have actually had to make the call.

‘course, I didn’t even check the web until about 20 minutes ago 🙂

Now I have to go outside and ask the workers if theres any chance of a power interuption. I have UPS’s on all my PC’s (including the Tivo), but it’s nice to know when there’s going to be a problem.
