tales from the parkside
11:30 AM - 07/25/2006

The topic: The heat


The phone rang Saturday and it was mom. 

“Is your electric out?”

No, we’ve got power.  Her’s was out. 

According to our call this morning, it was out most of the weekend.  And the manager of the park didn’t call the electric company, the tenants did.  (They own their homes, rent the property; the utilities are added to their monthly bills.)  It was the first the electric company had heard.

One of the people calling let them know that it was a senior citizens’ park and that there were going to be heat related health problems. And there were.  Mom said there were four people were taken away in ambulances. Scary.

Mom thinks it’s because the equipment at the park is outdated. They bring in new homes and they use more power overall and it’s overloading what they’ve got. They need to be replaced.  And mom knows if they’re replaced, their rents will go up accordingly.
