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.”
