True, but if you are already filing a claim for something else you would have probably met your deductible so it depends. Also, Amica has never raised my rates when we file claims - we don't file them often, but if they were raising my rates we would have left them long ago.

Bullsh*t. Take your class warfare somewhere else.

If you look at the outage maps, some of the most wealthy areas in the Hartford area are those with the most outage and longest restoration time.

Anyone else have phone or cable lines pulled from their house by the line crews?

I heard it happen last night, but didn't know what had happened until this morning when I found the telephone wire laying across my front yard. Fittings and wire had been yanked out if the side of the house. The cable line was untouched.

Completely baffled as to how or why it could have happened...

? yeah thats a little baffling to me.. Maybe it was tangled with the electric wires? This is nuts. Was the siding damaged? Thats low voltage..you can touch those wires if you want to try to bring them back.(make sure its the phone wire!)

It's not the truth. I live here, I spent the day on both sides of the river doing water remediation and have been in touch with many of my clients through this whole thing, both rich and poor. I also have the CLP map to support me.

The "rich" areas are the worst in regard to outage and restoration time. This is not rocket science. You have nothing factual to back you up.

Take your class warfare somewhere else, like where you live, New Jersey. It has no bearing on this subject here or is of any use during a time of extreme duress for our residents.

Maybe you should stop trying to evaluate CT from NJ. Just a thought.

lol. I try not to get wild up with comments like those..Its typical thinking by them. When talking to a linesman he said they try to fix the main roads first and if they can turn on a whole neighborhood rather then just 2 houses they will. Some people (including me) forget that they might not have all the material on the truck.

I'd love to see stats when all said and done on how many fuses, transformers, poles, wire, ect they went through.

It's nothing more than this thing called nature and the natural fluctuations that occur. These fluctuations in temps have occurred forever. We are just better at more accurately measuring and record it now.
You have provided no links to support that claim using emperical data...

Average U.S. temperature increases by 0.5 degrees F

"NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center also reports

The 2000 – 2009 decade will be the warmest on record, with its average global surface temperature about 0.96 degree F above the 20th century average. This will easily surpass the 1990s value of 0.65 degree F."
