I wonder if anyone knows why the power companies seem to have such a hard time keeping the power on in south Catonsville during foul weather. I live near Catonsville High School. During July, power has been interrupted twice, for roughly a total of about five hours. That doesn't seem like much but I have family living near Edmondson Avenue and their power has yet to go out this month. I've lived at my current location for close to 18 years. In all that time, power outages seem to have occurred remarkably more frequently than in any other section of Catonsville.
