Thursday evening New Hampshire got hit by a tremendous ice storm. The lights flickered a few times, before we finally lost power after a transformer outside blew up.
We had enough hot water left for me to take a shower and go to work on Friday. In Boston, all was well. People were unaware that their neighbors to the north were frozen under ice.
A state of emergency has been declared. Governor Lynch claimed it as because it’s the biggest power outage in state history, with the power company suggesting it may take a week, and even that they’re not sure quite how just how many lost power. They have crews coming in from out of state: and Canada.
But I’m pretty sure it’s because my nearby cell tower is off the air, meaning that my Interet access is spotty at best. We have the generator and fireplace on, but without cable, no Internet access. And that, my friends, is a state of emergency.
