  • Flashlights hate me.
    I was reminded of that about 8 p.m. April 15 when I called Duke Energy in an effort to find out what time our power would be restored. Yes, the late afternoon storm socked the Antioch community with a haymaker. We lost the lights about 3:30 p.m. that day.
    “Sir, our utility crews are still assessing damage in your area,” the courteous customer rep said. “That’s all the information I have at this time.”
