Irene at Toad Woods: Update 2:14 am Monday

We're luckier than I knew. The National Grid outage map has Toad Woods solidly in the Wales outage area affecting 1,062 customers since 6:37 am Sunday. I'm glad we're not among them.

There's a teeny, tiny bare slice on the map about 1/3 mile away -- it's the only clear space between this outage area and another one affecting 3,398 customers since 8:49 am Sunday. There are 26 separate outages in all in the 18 mile wide, 8 mile tall map I looked at first. Zooming out to see the whole map is even more sobering. For as gentle as Irene was around here today, she still had her way with way to many lives.

Verizon landline phone service is back. Susan reached Fred on his Sprint cellphone, but mine still shows no service, no how.

Irene seems to have taken several hours along with her when she blew herself out of the area. If you find any of them among the branches and other things she dropped along her path, please return them to me. Thank you.

I will return any I find though I suspect they will not be in the best of shape at this point in time. Sometimes it may be better off letting go a few of those hours and to keep moving on to the ones that lay ahead.

Glad you came through it mostly unscathed.
