My hubby is a Duke lineman out of Todd Hunter District, so I appreciate the kind words about the work they are doing. I've only seen him a few minutes each day when he wakes up, before he rushes back to work. They are all working 16 hours shifts (although the first day he worked 24 hours straight). He missed spending the last 10 hours with our daughter who surprised us by flying up from Austin Texas for the weekend. He is eatting whatever fast food he can swallow in a few minutes.

1) When you see a Duke truck, do not come running at the truck screaming "Get my f***g electric on NOW!" This will only cause them to drive away fast and not return until the next day accompanied by a police officer.
2) Do not show up at any office or district and demand that you personally get pushed to the top of the list. Your name and address ended up in the waste basket, because the lineman take their repair orders from the 'trouble desk', not notes left with the office staff. BTW - police are now stationed at each district for the protection of the office workers.
3) Do not threaten the lineman. They are civil for the most part, but have been pushed to their limits. You will either be arrested, or you will find yourself with a lineman boot shoved up someplace. And trust me, these are strong men.
4) Do not follow their truck in your car. They don't know what you want. And no, you can not help them. They do not need you to point out your house.

Remember, they were working on getting the most people up in the quickest amount of time. If your tree has fallen and ripped out your service, you will be low of the list. It doesn't make a lot of sense for 3 lineman to spend 4 hours getting the electric on to 1 house, verses 3 lineman for 4 hours getting the electric on for an entire street.
