A tale of two storms

One of our experienced storm managers, who is now retired, contrasts how OPPD responded to two storms: one a surprise October 1997 snow storm, the other, a June 2008 wind storm.

The difference was in the response. Improvements that were made following the ’97 storm made the 2008 effort go much smoother: faster restoration,  used 280 fewer external crews and cost more than $4 million less.
