  1. The next time a bunch of wacked out hippie tree huggers complain to City Council about trimming trees too close to powerlines along the holy Rock Quarry Road, I hope these thousands of people who lost power show up and laugh the tree huggers out of the room and then bitch out the Council for not taking care of the City’s electrical system.
