New Village Transformer; A Miracle…

After we get our power back on, my next post is about the new power transformer and power poles we are getting today. Our village is getting updated in the utility section and we are cheering the power company on. Three new poles and a whole new transformer area. Yippy…

I am told that we will have almost no outages now? I always question that out here in the middle of nowhere, but we can dream…

Come back tomorrow and see if we have power yet…

Tomorrow it is… 🙂



My my how we have progressed into the next century here in the village. It is almost sad to see the old beast go, but since it breaks down twenty times a week and my Buddy is getting older and grouchier to continually climb a ladder to fix the old beast, the new transformer is a welcome addition…

Now since it is new and they have to come back to install three new poles where we have rotted wood poles, I will reserve anymore comments about reliability until a future date. But it looks pretty and that counts for something; doesn’t it?

I included a picture of the cover lid with the Russian utilities and writing. There is a reason; I am literally daily told that I am a fake! I am told that I am a Russian acting like an American and or I am faking pictures. So I decided to allow you to see something real hard for me to fake in America. The cover to an electric transformer box. It is strange, but after all these years and 5000 plus posts, you would think that even the most ardent hating people would understand that I live in Russia and that I am an American… 🙂

But who cares! What ever and all that… I live in Russia and I love it; Get Over It!

The last image of the gallery is my real concern, we have had terrible storms and while I have complained for years that we need to buy new windows for the village home, I have spoke and it fell upon deaf ears. Well the waiting is over and I am trying to salvage what I can out of the two side windows and create one window. The other window will be covered over, until I can find windows to replace them both with…

The storm hit and it was truly cyclone in nature. I had Boza in my arms and we were sitting in the chair next to the window that escaped and then all of a sudden, the front window blew inwards and the screen exploded into the room and as the wind whirled, it had only one way out and it went through the window next to me. That window was half closed and that is what finished it off. It was old and rotted, but the wind was terrible and it blew the window clean out of the house, right into the cherry trees. It tore my internet modem cables and scared Boza and I half to death… 🙂

I had to quickly cover the window with a screen I had and I used staples to put it in place. It will do for now, until I can swap windows and utilize the window we never use. Actually it allows lots of air to come in and that is good…

Those little demons above, desperate to get in, are why I had to seal the window with a screen so fast. I am lucky I had the screen to do the job with, or I would be a mosquito pincushion right now…

Oh, but my roofs stayed on and do not leak! That is a good thing…

Have a nice day, for we will…

Goodbye from Boza and I…
