I live in the 78245 zip code and at least once a week our power goes out. CPS can never give a reason why we deal with this. I've noticed it happens on Monday more than any other day.

Anyone else having this problem? Frustrating the heck out of me.

One thing I have found is old transformers are notorious for this. We used to have one our street we referred to as the "eggshell transformer". It seemed like anytime there was a slight amount of wind or rain, the power went out. Eventually CPS changed it and we havent had a problem since.

I can 2nd the frustration. It is so much fun having to reset all the clocks once a week.

I'm in same zip code. Around what time on Mondays? I'm not here during the week at home (usually a M-F 8 to 5 shift).

I'm usually at work when it happens but notice it when I get home. Couple Mondays I have had off and it happens before noon. Of course both times I was online doing school work so internet connections were lost

It's a pretty new neighborhood. Not sure if that has anything to do with age of power lines or not.

I live in the 78251 and we too have a power outage issue at least once a week. Today the power went out about 11 AM for 15 minutes. It does get pretty annoying.

Possibility is CPS might keep forgetting to feed the chipmunks on that day to keep the electrical wheel spinning
