I have lived in Burien area since 1971. In 2020 we have had more and longer power outages than in the last 20 years.
There has to be a problem with Seattle City Lights system.

Our power went back on after one hour this time. A few weeks ago it went back on after an hour and a half. For me, that’s the true test of how robust a power grid is. There are always going to be things like vehicles hitting poles, and equipment failures. But if they can get the power back on quickly that shows the system is working.
