Got a call from dispatcher of house with no power.  Upon arriving to address noticed that neighbors had power and it was all coming off the same transformer.  Before knocking on the door I glanced at the meter and could see that the disc was spinning.  I went to the door and an elderly lady came to the door saying she had no power.  After telling her I looked at the meter and it seemed to be working and I asked  her if she could check her breaker box.  She told me it was in the garage in the back and we walked around the outside of the house using my flashlight to see the way.  After checking the breaker box and seeing everything looked fine, I reached up to a pull string light in the garage and it came on.  Come to find out she fell asleep in front of a window reading and when she woke up it was dark outside and in the house so she assumed she was out of power, you know what happens when you assume something.
