Throwback Thursday: The EPB Christmas Windows In Chattanooga #TBT

Each year my cities power and fiber optics service create holiday window displays featuring a festive theme. This part of the display is appropriate these days because utility workers are driving around in areal bucket trucks like the one seen here to get the power back on for those who were impacted by the tornadoes of Easter Sunday. Utility workers risk their lives to be sure we can have electricity and fiber optics which powers so much of our own lives.

Tornadoes And Severe Weather Last Night In #Chattanooga – April 12, 2020

A tweet from April 12, 2020 from WRCB-TV in Chattanooga, Tennessee

Easter Sunday was a rough day for many in the southern USA. Severe weather including tornadoes and thunderstorms impacted millions including my hometown of Chattanooga and surrounding area. Tornadoes hit in a residential area near our largest shopping mall. Not only do we have to deal with Coronavirus now people are having to deal with the devastating aftermath of these storms. Me and mine are OK but some friends are not. It’s going to be a tough few days for them.
