Sorry, but your lights are no more important than those of a three family home in Waterbury.

I just looked at these. I love how the towns with 90+ percent of residents without power aren't on the list.

I actually agree with that. I'm just saying that I expected that some of the town's movers/shakers would have tried to influence the senator.

I've read about officials in other towns doing that (Greenwich, North Haven). It's really terrible that some people think the wealthy should be served first. If anything, it's that poor family in Waterbury that needs power the most.

Yeah... That is not nice.

Everyone should be treated equally

I can't tell you how bad it is up around where I am. My street alone...maybe 1/4 mile long at best? Starting with my house at the end on the corner of the short dead end road that T's, big oak crashed down across my driveway taking out a retaining wall and some wires. One house over on the T street has an upside down tree top in the primary and a huge oak limb across his driveway. The house across the street from me several big oak branches down, my neighbor had a tree on his shed, his wires ripped off his house by three large branches, the guy across the street from him had a tree hit his house, and there are two widow makers hanging on the wires. Two houses down a HUGE pine tree is down, across the street from that there is another widow maker in the primary, one house down there is a tree on a slope that up rooted and came down on the wires mashing them flat to the ground. All that in about 600' of road from my house. It's nasty bad, and just continues to the surrounding streets and neighborhoods.

My back yard and property has probably 15 large branches down all over the place (Like huge branches off of large 75 year old oaks.), and at least 12 widow makers hanging. Several trees need to be taken down as they look like a tornado came through and topped them off.

It's not much different around town either. I went into Vernon and it's just wrecked. Every other house has wires or trees down.

It's really really bad here. There is nowhere that is not affected badly.
