February 14, 2017

Thanks to the round-the-clock work of BC Hydro crews, power was restored to more than 360,000 customers in the stormy days leading up to a sunny Family Day. And that good work doesn't go unnoticed, as BC Hydro's Greg Reimer notes in a letter about the recently deceased owners of a Horseshoe Bay restaurant that stayed open late to feed our crews. And finally, a look at how a crew at Tofino helped make a skateboard park reality for a remote First Nations community.

Heavy snow and freezing rain kept our crews busy when the latest storm blew through, knocking out power to tens of thousands in the Lower Mainland & Vancouver Island. Many outages were caused by trees and branches weakened by snow load falling on lines, like this one that hit a transmission line in Lake Cowichan.
