Dark and dreary was the night, a storm was drawing nigh
And vivid streaks of lightning flashed across the darkened sky.
A horrendous wind did blow and many trees did fall.
Sudden darkness came upon us all.
What had happened? How long would it last?
These were questions that were asked.
But not to worry … do not fret.
We know for certain the challenge will be met
By our brave crews from the PUD
Who charge out in such a storm to take care of you and me.
So here are many thanks and a loud cheer
For all of you who are always standing near.
Thank you for all the hard and dangerous work you do to keep us warm and lighted.
