I heard reports today that some people won't have power until Christmas, schools have cancelled classes until after the new year.

I am an electrician and have been absolutely out straight re-connecting people. I have been hearing horror stories of people getting completely gouged. For the most part many people are requiring just clipping the service cable back on to the house and re-setting sill plates. A two hour Job. My fathers neighbor paid a guy 600 dollars to literally install two clips and re-set a weather head. Worcester and to the north and west are an absolute mess

Life around here for the most part is back to normal,but others aren't so fortunate,my thoughts and prayers are with you folks.

Even better news two big snow storms are forcasted for the weekend, just to make things interesting.

I'm in day number 7 without power. Any longer and I'm going to need to learn how to whittle plugs with a knife.

Day 8 and I got power back. I can fire up the lathe and dust collector.

Now I need to shovel a foot of snow in the morning. No Problem.......

Talk about investing in a generator Huh?
Good to hear the powers back Rick.
Its nice to see communities pull together for the less fortunate and the infirmed. Life is difficult enough for them.

Got a foot of the white stuff here with some more on the way.
Snow is kind of cool but the shovelng can be a PIA. It isnt so bad if you stay on it early and again later. I just do a 2 foot wide swath from my deck to the car.

Thursday, a foot of snow last night, another 6-8" forcast for tomorrow.... I'm already tired of winter!
