Now at 8:30 it is working, for five minutes, not overnight. A fuse box blew, behind P.M.(sic) house and at 10:10 am today, workmen are still trying to fix it. Neighbors very helpful.
Twenty-seven hours later, we had phone service again. A transformer had blown up behind house #30. What a noise and what a fiery mess. Now I know how lonely it feels to be without a phone, very old, alone, trapped. It could have been a disaster and I hope TELUS (the phone company) learns something from it.
Sorry if I missed your calls. Not my fault. Blame poor maintenance somewhere.
