Nothing like winter to cause problems. Someone takes out a power pole with a transformer on it. When the power comes back on, the water heater is fried, the furnace is fried, and several light bulbs. Expect no help from SaskPower, I was told by them.

Problem now is that we have limited heat and the temperature drops at night in here. Contacting several heating and plumbing places, I am told to keep harassing Saskpower to get them to either help or pay for the repairs. To get them out here it is about 300$ or more for a service call plus parts and labour.

Well, 25$ part and 45 minutes of my time later, ta da! We have heat again.
