Is my meter gone
i live in CT and my power went out due to the crazy snow storm over the weekend. Right before i lost power i was in the basement watching TV and it suddenly went out (hooked up to Monster Power surge supressor) then heard popping around the house. the lights got bright as well. My panel breakers started going out. It was every other one 1, 3, 5 etc. One CFL bulb blew out. I checked outside and no wires were down.
i did notice there is a burn mark on the inside of the meter. I shut the panel down but i did still have power after the initial popping. Apparently a transformer down the road was hit by a tree and sent a surge to my neighborhood.
The question i have is can i still get power if the meter is dead. Given all the repairs i dont know when the POCO will come out.
