Storm Moves Away — But 92% Of Town Without Power

The rain appears to be over. Winds are abating, though still substantial. Most of the remnants of Hurricane/Tropical Storm/pain in the butt Isaias should be gone later tonight.

Now the cleanup begins.

And the power restoration.

It won’t be easy. At 4:45 p.m., Eversource reported that 11,723 customers lacked power — out of 12,632 in town. That’s 92.8%.

The good news: It was a tropical storm in August. Not a blizzard in January.

NOTE: “06880” — meaning my house — is part of that 92.8% without power. Please be patient. I cannot post stories, or answer emails, tonight. Check back tomorrow …
