You can see the power line running along the bottom of this photo. Our entire town was without power for about 24 hours--started getting it back yesterday. We are alot better off than many because we have a generator, 2 woodstoves and a gas stove to cook on. We were supposed to go to see my family for the weekend, but that got cancelled since we can't get out the driveway!
It's nice to live in a small town at a time like this--our neighbor left one of his vehicles at the end of our driveway in case we needed to go anywhere, another neighbor took Alan to Torrrington to get more gas for the generator. And the same guy stopped a CLP crew this morning & told them about our situation--They just showed up to start cutting away the trees!
