Last night, I was one of more than 700 Westport customers who lost power, because it was windy.
It was restored about 3 hours later (thanks, CL&P!).
When I got home this afternoon, there was a voicemail from Cablevision. My internet should be working, they told me — not that it was their fault, they added — but if it wasn’t, I should try to reboot.
And if I didn’t know how to do that, I should just go to www.Optimum.net.
I checked the date. Today is October 23.
Not April 1.
