Welp, I was in bed this morning (yes I sleep late on the weekends) around 8:30AM, and woke to a strange noise.
It was the "meter man" - because I saw my clock radio blinking 12:00.
I go downstairs, stove and microwave are blinking too.
At first, I thought a car hit a pole somewhere, but started the coffee maker and went out back to see a sparkly new meter in place - and the hard-hatted installer 2 houses away, knocking on the back door there.
I would at least liked to have copied down the old meter's reading for accuracy purposes - because I don't trust any company to keep accurate records.
By the way, is the hard hat in case a bird poops on their heads?
