    It was on the radio. Two transformers went out at ComEd in Dixon. Well, actually, one, and then another...so there were two waves of outages, I guess.

    That happened a week or so across northern Illinois. Two transfer stations went down.
    Outage affected areas close to galena all the way accross to pecatonica. Including
    Freeport. A small portion of the northwest corner of freeport had power the rest of the
    city was down along with the rural towns. Lasted about two and a half hours.
