I have access to Internet more often now at some places that have power, but 95% of my town is still without power including me. CL&P got some private contractors from other states to come by, but they never paid their previous contractors after the hurricane Irene clean-up, so some of them never showed up.
To make matters worse, they won't send power to the areas that have any down lines. There are still down lines all over the roads. There are some down lines that snapped from people's houses and are laying on their lawns. They have to call private electricians because the state won't repair them if they're on private property. If those people don't take care of it by Sunday, CL&P will have to keep those entire sections of the grid switched off until they do.
The run on gas stations seems to be over, and the stations aren't running out of gas as often now that the roads are clear for the trucks. People were lined up at pumps and some of the stations refused to allow people to fill their portable gas containers which they use for their backup generators and cars.
The line at Dunkin' Donuts has been out the door and down the sidewalk, and their wi-fi is broken. The local Starbucks has wi-fi, but people are again lined up all the way out the door and down the sidewalk with their laptops, iPads and phones.
CL&P is estimating most of the state will have power back by Sunday night.
