Typical. Did NOT expect anything else from (bloody) Eversource.
We knew this was coming. Eversource is so predictable.
Yes, we had SOME blowing. Nothing major. NO TREES FELL AROUND HERE. We know! We drove around for an hour, at 10pm, looking for any fallen trees. A few small branches down.
Nothing to warrant an 8-hour power outage. Bloody Eversource.
Eversource only has about 160 customers in Alton. We are at the END of a line. No customers beyond us. The line ends with us, in Alton. So, more often than not, Eversource has no incentive or motivation to keep us going.
I am CONVINCED that somebody at an Eversource distribution center turns off our power during a storm so that the juice can be used somewhere else.
That power was restored at 3:14AM proves my point. There is NO WAY, no way in hell, that crews were out there at 3am moving downed trees & splicing power cables.
ONLY way power is restored at 3:14am is by somebody sitting at a station ‘pressing a button’.
