Some Progress on Power Grid Repairs, but a Nor’easter is Comming.

It is hard to believe that it was just a year ago that we had an early winter Nor’easter for Halloween. This year we get another early winter storm before all of the repairs post Hurricane Sandy are completed. The following images show that progress is being made. The last image shows that the light rain was converting to snow. My furnace and hot water heater were repaired, and I got a delivery of oil before the storm hit. Power went out again during the night. I was not sure if this was due to the power company switching over circuits to the newly repaired lines, or due to snow-covered branches taking down new lines.
