I hate to ask this, but the power company in CT is having trouble getting all the lines for electricity hooked up again after the bad tropical storm Irene hit their area...
There's towns like Marlborough, Salem, some part of Glastonbury, towns near the beach that are without power and they say they may not get power again until a week from now.
So, I have to ask, if you do have friends or family down in the southern New England way, and you have space and wouldn't mind having them around for a couple of days, to maybe a week, could you get in touch with them and invite them up your way?
They say that CL&P, one of the major electric co, only has less than 200 workers to help take down the damaged trees and restore the power lines again...
But there's at least a quarter of a million people I think still, who are without power in Connecticut, maybe Rhode Island too, not sure.
