I'm in little East Hampton and we are part of the 10% with power right now. We lost it yesterday from about 4-8 while I was at work then it came back on. We lost it again from 6am-6pm today. We went to FI's grandparents house to watch football like we usually do on Sundays. While I was there I got a text from my neighbor and kept checking facebook to see how we were faring. We are back on (hopefully for good). My school is already closed for tomorrow so no work for me.My parents went to my brother's last night because there were road closures and they couldn't get home. They lost power there around midnight. They went home to find power lines across their driveway so they are staying at our beach house for a few days. The only shower they have is outside or at my uncle's house next door and the cable is out there so I invited them to come here but they decided they are settled there. I wouldn't be surprised if my dad comes here during the day tomorrow if my mom has to work. My brother is staying at his girlfriend's mom's house tonight but may come to my house tomorrow (he said he won't be able to handle her younger sister for more than one night).Hope everyone without power has somewhere warm to stay.
I am in New Britain and thank God we have power! No cable so we are all a little bored. I was so happy to get to work to use the internet this morning. lol Cell phone is down too. My Mom in Hartford, FMIL in W. Hftd have no power. Neither do my aunts in Bristol so everyone crashed at my place last night. It was crowded but fun!
We were very lucky not to lose power. Lost cable, but that's no big deal at all....my only concern is, where am I gonna get gas??? I hear it's craziness out there. Anyone know of a gas station that ISN'T sold out of gas? In the Southington, Cheshire, Waterbury area... I was going to try Waterbury Costco?
I lucked out and have power - our condo in South Windsor has underground power lines. The main road we're off of is a complete mess, so I have NO idea how our sources weren't effected... I'm thinknig of everyone!
