Two important reminders: Power outage reporting and turning back the clock

With heavy winds in the forecast Saturday, here’s the phone number for Snohomish County PUD power outages: 425-783-1001. Do not report those outages via Twitter, PUD says.

And, remember that tonight’s the night to “fall back” and reset your clocks an hour earlier.

  1. Also don’t assume that the outage was already reported, even when police are on scene doing traffic control around downed wires. Yesterday around 11:00 am, a tree took out wires on 48th just south of 188th. LPD and volunteers doing traffic control. I left at 5:00 pm for the Sounders game and zero progress on the downed wires. I came back at 10:30 pm and LPD gone but wires still down with tree still in them. Called PUD and they were unaware of the situation. Power restored 5:30 am today.
