Back in Business Again!

BUT NOT “OUT OF THE WOODS”

by Sharon Rondeau

(Feb. 26, 2019) — Powerful winds on Monday night knocked out cable service, then electricity, in eastern Connecticut, where The Post & Email is based.

The area is heavily-wooded with sparse population as compared to other areas of the state.

On Monday morning, a bizarre snow squall occurred while the sun was out as the wind increased, sounding increasingly like a freight train throughout the day and evening.

Branches and pine needles have littered the roads and yielded around-the-clock work for tree-removal services and utility employees alike.

As of approximately 12:50 p.m. Tuesday, as a trip to the local library to utilize its wi-fi was under consideration, both services were restored.

Since last night, a noisy but welcome generator maintained the heat and lights.  As the wind continues to gust, however, we may not yet be “out of the woods.”

    I still treasure the smell of Pine trees…beautiful Autumn leaves…tapping a Maple tree and covering a snowball with the sap… :-)

    Snowing while the sun was shinning.
    That’s cool.
