Single Status Update
-7 F, outside right now. One of my tenants told me she had no heat in her apartment and that the stove did not work. I soon found there was nothing that uses 240 volts working in the house (triplex). I called the power company, they said not their problem and to call an electrician. Several electricians later, I found one who would be here in 1 to 2 hrs. All the others were booked solid till late tonight or tomorrow morning. I then noticed a power company line truck out front on the street. So I went out to ask them questions. Turns out that it is a power company transformer that blew and they are working on the problem. That I should cancel my call to the electrician as they were taking care of it. I cancelled the electrician and we are patiently awaiting the return of the power and eventual heat.
When the heat has been restored, I will do the updates. I will not try to type wearing my gloves, sorry.

If Canada’s power companies are like the US, the reps are usually not a help @Ivor Slipper.
I didn’t realize PG&E (Pacific Gas & Electric) provided Customer Service support to other utility companies. (PG&E is the one that kept insisting that they weren’t at fault for the North Bay fires, but went silent after a report was leaked that blamed them for poor maintenance of their equipment. My lovely utility company.) :-/
