After The Storm

Just when we thought it was over — it wasn’t.

The wind pounded all day yesterday. But the thunder, lightning and heavy rain did not sweep through until after dark.

In its wake, over 2000 customers were without power around midnight.

I’m lucky. Mine went out around 8:30 p.m., and came back around 2:30 a.m.

So — while I’m becoming inured to the fact that power will go over in every big storm — my hat is off to CL&P for getting it back so quickly.

But I know my story is not echoed by everyone in town — particularly the 371 359 customers who still lacked power as of 5 a.m. 6:30 a.m. (Not to mention the Bayberry Lane residents, where an electrical line fire was reportedly still burning this morning.)
