Here at Tremont Electric, one of the reasons we do what we do is to help the world move away from fossil fuels that are causing climate change. If anyone in Cleveland ever needed a reason to accept that climate change is real, Hurricane Sandy provided it. Outside of New York City, the place with the most power outages from Sandy is the Cleveland area. Here's a picture of two of the oldest trees in historic Lincoln Park in Tremont, just down the block from our office.
Wanna know how powerful this storm was? Below are bricks from the old Cleveland Municipal stadium that had been dumped into Lake Erie as breakwall over 15 years ago. Sandy just spit them out onto the shore in Bratenahl. Now they are a souvenir for one of the residents....Go Browns!
Our staff have been dealing with power outages all week, at home and at work, and it's ongoing. The office was without internet most of the week. We had planned to present to the REI Soho store in NYC today, that obviously isn't happening. Who knew that both them AND us, 450 miles away, would have lost our power from a hurricane in late October. Thanks to everyone for your support as we work through our latest battle with climate change.
