Kudos' to Detroit Edison for restoring our power a little while ago. The storm last night caused a pole to come down by Mt. Avon Cemetery, a large pine came down and then on the opposite side, a pole split in half but remained standing. Thank you Detroit Edison and the crew that came in from Howell and restored our power. It is truly appreciated in this heat. We wish all the crews a safe 4th of July and hope they get to enjoy some of this holiday--the crews are coming in from Ohio as well to help restore areas in Michigan.
