When I arrived at Central Presbyterian Church this morning there was no power in the building. The first volunteer to arrive for the day was in a tizzy because she did not even know how to make a phone call with the power out. When I went out to find out what was going on, I discovered that all the activity was happening right in front of the church.
There were two trucks from Tarentum Borough Electric present working on repairs to a single line that had fallen. Borough Manager Jeffrey Thomas was present, and explained to me that most of the town was without power because of this line break.
While the crews worked on the repair, alarms at Golden Towers brought a response from all three fire companies in town. The alarms turned out to be only alarms going off.
And Central Presbyterian Church was right in the center of all the activity. Almost like being at a parade.
