Happy Mothers Day to all the moms out there, including my own awesome mom who is also a TVEC member. Thanks for doing all the thankless tasks and unseen labors that make our lives so much better. “She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.” Proverbs 31:25-26

Additional Bill Payment and Food Assistance Grants

In case you missed it, the TVEC Charitable Foundation made additional grants to bill payment assistance organizations, and added funding for area food pantries. For bill payment assistance organizations go here.

Electrical Safety Month

Electricity makes most of modern life possible. But it can also be dangerous if you aren’t careful. May is electrical safety month, so please take the time to take stock of your electrical system, look for any problem areas and be safe! Here are some great resources at ESFI.ORG.

I don’t think any TVEC linemen have been asked to rescue bear cubs before, but I know they would be up for the challenge. This happened in Virginia.

Weather Outlook

Looks like a pleasant spring weekend to enjoy some time outdoors and celebrate the moms. Rain is back in the forecast for midweek. With lows dipping into the 40s be sure to keep tabs on your thermostat. If you have a heat pump unit and try to make up several degrees of heat all at once, it may turn on the “heat strip” resisitive heating elements which use a lot of energy in a short amount of time.

Don’s Random Things on the Internet

I’d seen photos of all the parked planes due to COVID-19…   and it looks like cruise ships have the same fate while we go through this. Of course you have to park them in the water.

Summer is coming… so here is a very hi-def look at the sun that will be baking us soon enough.

Families have been working on some songs during the lockdown it seems……. Beatles, Les Miserables, Disney…. good stuff.

Have a great weekend, everybody!
