Prepare for the Planned Power Outage for Portions of Taylor County
One thing we can all agree upon is that this summer seems to be hotter than most summers in the past. Another thing we can agree upon is that power outages are not a good thing this time of year, all thanks to the scorching heat.
However, a planned power outage is just what is happening for a portion of Taylor County this Thursday night and Friday morning.
According to a Facebook post, by Taylor Electric Coop, one of their substations will be down for a few hours for repairs.

For those in the affected area, please make sure you plan accordingly. The upside is that they plan on this outage to take place during the night and overnight hours, so it should be not quite as hot as we experience during the day.

Speaking of this extreme West Texas heat, make sure you're not breaking the law by leaving your dogs out in the elements without proper shade and water.
