This week’s Unsung Heroes are obvious:
Sunday night’s storm was bad. At one point, nearly half of Westport was without electricity.
Did Eversource get your power back instantly? Were you the first house they hustled to?
Probably not. Even in Westport, not everyone can be #1.
But they had a lot to do. Most of the state was hit hard. The men and women who assessed damage, climbed buckets, even answered phones, were overwhelmed. They worked long hours, and did their best. We owe them our thanks.
Thanks too to all of Westport’s police, firefighters and other responders. Plus of course those invaluable public works crews, tree guys, and random folks who helped out, wherever and however they could.
Slowly, we’re getting back to normal.
Until the next storm hits.
