“06880” Is Here For Help And Questions

As Westport moves into the mucky phase of cleanup after Hurricane Irene, many people need services:  rug cleaners, debris haulers, rewire-computer nerds.

Many others are eager to provide those services.

At the same time, lots of folks have questions:

  • What’s the best way to minimize mold?
  • How do I take care of my pool when the pump is out?
  • Anyone have a shortcut for getting through to my insurance company?

Please use the “Comments” section below to look for services — and offer your own.

And to post questions, and answer them.

This is a great opportunity to connect with neighbors, and help each other out.  We’ll use the collective wisdom of the great “06880” community to solve problems and devise solutions.

Of course:  caveat emptor.

Longtime Compo Beach resident Gail Cunningham Coen knows how to do everything storm-related, from battening down to repairing seawalls. Do you?

    Mold is overrated as to its damage to you/your house. Carriers in the South have stopped covering it because of false claims;
    Just skim the leaves out of your pool. It is safe to swim;
    Call your agent instead of the carrier directly. A good agent
    can do wonders.
    Tree work needed?? Call Justin Hitt at 770-882-7742 TreeJob.com. They are up from Atlanta to assist and fully insured.

  2. Does anyone need a full cooler full of ice? True to the If-you-bring-your-umbrella-it-won’t-rain Law of Thermodynamics, we had power restored last night after I was finally able to secure four bags of ice at the Merritt Country Store yesterday. Let me know.

    Heck I have about 100lbs of ICE!!! Any takers….

  4. Anyone know when Newton Turnpike will get power back? On WWPT they say they’re picking off small roads all around town. Newton is a long road with lots if dark houses.

    Fix us and you’ll knock off a big chunk of misery index.

    Please CLP give us power.

    • Call CL&P, First Selectman’s office, then email State Senator Boucher and then pray. Do this repeatidly for each hour of the day.
