Here in the Valley, we’ve had a tough week. But in Connecticut, they’ve had a miserable week. Just awful. 63% of my home town is still without power. Seven days later — that’s insane. I know this is the worst loss of power Connecticut has seen since Hurricane Gloria in 1985, but good lord, seven days, and more than half of your customers still don’t have service. Come. ON! And while there are really good folks out there working their asses off for their neighbors, the people who have the power to do the most seem to be doing the least.
Thoughts? Am I being too tough on the electric companies. I know here in Mass. folks have their own complaints about WEMCO, but there just doesn’t seem to be the same outcry here as there is in our neighbor to the south.
Not for nothing, but I really think CL&P, with all apologies to our furry friends, screwed the pooch on this one.
Update: I wanted to include a few more links about what I’m talking about in terms of CL&P not doing what they should be doing –
