How is everbody dealing?

Have no gas here. Stuck-wish I could be out helping people

Target/Price Chopper is open for food.

This is pretty bad. Stay warm, I know there
is shelters open if needed.

Failed attempt at charging the main trans lines between WL/W/EW. Last I heard was tomorrow for another try. No guarantee that power will be restored at any given area though. Well, worse case is sun/Monday. I have a friend in Enfield--met him at at Cabala's ( jeep M&G )-- I'll have my self a hot shower and will be able to wash some cloths there. good thing. Sponge baths suck ***

Thanks Austen

Still in the dark in Farmington. I hot wired the oil furnace to run off the generator. So we had heat and hot water for the last two nights. House was down to 48 degrees. I've been driving around each night on my way home from work, and I haven't seen any progress. Lines and trees still in the roads, and not one crew to be seen anywhere. In all my travels, the only places I saw power were on Rte. 6 by Fieneman Rd and by UCONN Med Center. Everywhere else was dark. The town went from 96% out to 89% last night, so hopefully we'll be restored soon. Murphy and Scarletti's in the Exchange is open if anyone needs a hot meal.

Still dark in my part of Farmington as of 7:00 AM today. There are cross streets on either side of our road that have power but athe few streets between them are still dark. I saw two different companies from North Carolina (PIKE and SU) in town this morning, so I'm hopeful that the lights will be on when I get home tonight.

With heat, hot water and TV on generator power, no complaints because there are so many people that are worse off. Hope everybody else is up an running!
