Slowly coming out of the dark
Slowly power is coming back to Southern New England. The early season snowfall came when the leaves were still on the trees. The wet, heavy snowfall bent trees to the breaking point and pulled down power lines all across the region. The damage is pretty staggering. By this weekend most folks will have power restored but the clean up will take a while. These storms have a way of reminding us how fortunate we are in this country to have an infrastructure that makes our lives easier but also how fragile that infrastructure really is.
