I live on the unit block of R St NW, where there's been a lot of Pepco work on the street (and signs indicate it will continue into December). The other day my doorbell, which was brand new, suddenly stopped working. Today, my basement tenant was watching TV when the power went out. It quickly came back on, but the TV was blown out.
I'm suspicious that surges related to the Pepco work is to blame. Anyone else experiencing this kind of thing?
