Why would anyone turn off the power in the winter?

He died over numerous years ago

I got a PC call from our acquaintance last week. She got home from shopping and the oil furnace wasn’t working. She had icicles hanging from her ceiling because of broken pipes. She said she wanted me to turn the oil furnace back on so she could get heat in the home and melt the ice. I anxious about her not having heat, and I ran right over. I knew she could not stay in the home with broken pipes, so I asked for her daughter’s PC number. I wanted to make sure she had some locale to stay until the homeowner’s insurance adjuster arrived and got repairs done on the house. I got in touch with her daughter, who told me she would be right over. In the meantime, I was looking around the house, and I realized someone had turned off the power. I asked her if she had forgotten to pay the power bill, however she could not remember. Her child showed up half an hour later, and I had left a note on the door for her to come to our house. She walked in and asked what happened. I said there was no power and without power; the oil furnace didn’t work and the pipes froze. She hugged her mom and asked if she was okay; My acquaintance said she thought her hubby had paid the bills, and I was confused. He died over numerous years ago. Her child told me she had dementia and often forgets things. It took three weeks to get the home repaired, and the oil furnace substituted, however she never moved back. Her child moved her in with her, where she didn’t need to worry about lack of heating, or forgetting to pay her bills.
