Here's To The Power Rangers

In Opheim, we have had more than our share of fog in the last several months.

In the summer it is OK as it usually means that we will get moisture in 90 days, so we put up with it.

In the winter, however, we wonder how much snow we will be getting in 90 days. We will certainly be tired of it come March or April.

It makes for beautiful scenery with it's heavy white coating on the trees and power lines. The beauty is short lived as it causes so much damage as can be attested by our local electric company, NorVal.

We were without power on Thursday, when they had a planned short outage for repairs but Mother Nature beat them to it when the power went off about half an hour before the planned shut off. Some were without power for several hours.

Then again on Friday the power was off for several hours and again on Saturday morning. There were two poles snapped off at the scale house just on the outskirts of town and 11 broken poles west of town. There were also many trees and tree branches downed.


We need to be thankful for the men who are out in all kinds of weather making repairs to keep our power on.
