You're the exception that proves it. Most of the region has great uptime, and also lots of trees, urban and rural both.
You're assuming something I didn't say - because I said nothing about uptime at all. (And for good reason, it's irrelevant to the your nonsensical claim that there is no impact from trees, and because it's not an issue... I've only lost power in the heaviest of storms.) The rest of the message is just more of the same - claiming I'm being "pillaged" not based on facts but on assumptions you've pulled out of thin air
Heavy rain doesn't impact the lines at all.
Except for when it does of course. If you lived in this area, you'd know it's very hilly and pieces of it do slide and trees do fall over when the ground gets saturated (in many places the topsoil is fairly thin with hardpan relatively close to the surface). Wherever you are isn't the whole of the Northwest, stop assuming that what hold true there holds true here.
