A rough week on the Palouse gives reason to pause for thought and say “thanks”   


Moscow Pullman Daily News editorial says it all

Post by Brandi Smith

Below is an excerpt from a Moscow Pullman Daily News editorial published on Saturday, Jan. 21. We want to share it with you because we take great pride in serving our customers as quickly as possible. Whether it’s in the midst of a storm or just a normal day, you can always count on the people who work at Avista to respond quickly and efficiently no matter what the weather does. 

With snow, ice, power outages, remember to say ‘thanks’

Written by Lee Rozen/M-P Daily News

Odd that a snow and ice storm, downed trees and power failures can get us feeling thankful.

Living here on the Palouse gives us a lot to be thankful for.

But we think the quick response and fast recovery from the chaos of Thursday night and Friday morning deserves extra thanks.

In some places with privately owned power companies, the response might still be getting organized. But Thursday night, we were glad for every dollar we pay Avista in our monthly power bill. As the deluge of ice and snow brought down trees and branches on power lines and caused transformers to explode, Avista moved quickly and efficiently to repair the damage or route around it. And then do it again. And again. (continued/login required.)
