We are out of electricity in eastern MA again. Our area is still being assessed for a repair date, others nearby are being reported at Nov 3. Last time we lost power for 16 hours during hurricane Irene just a few weeks again. I think that was the longest outage we had seen since buying our house in 1990. Now we’re looking at 100 hours+. It wasn’t bad Sunday while the sun was out and the house warmed, but waking up to 54F this morning (and <40F outside) was a little nippy. Looks like another sunny day today, at least its nice weather for the repair crews.
The aggravating part is that our street has all underground wiring.
I wonder how much the utilities pay for making all these major repairs after a storm vs biting the bullet and implementing a slow steady improvement program and moving the wiring into underground conduits.
I work farther north, where they still have power. You won’t be seeing much of me this week.
