Letter: Downed Poles and Electrical Outage

Letter to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

We would like to thank the gentleman from National Grid who arrived shortly after downed poles and wires interrupted our electrical service for seven hours after the terrible wind storm Monday.

These men worked constantly in horrific conditions to restore our power. We were extremely worried because of medical conditions that require oxygen, but told one of the men and he said it would be a while; after seven hours of their extremely hard work, our power was back!

Thank you, so very much!

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The topic that dominates our daily lives cannot be the only topic on the minds of state legislators.
Massachusetts lawmakers on Tuesday were holding a conference call to discuss their next steps in an era when face-to-face gatherings are impossible. No doubt, the COVID-19 pandemic will be topic No. 1, but the list of potential talking points is a long one.
"Obviously, we're out until May 1, maybe longer," state Rep. John Barrett III said on Monday. "We haven't done a budget yet. Usually that's done by the last week in April and we would have been completing it."
Barrett, a member of the House Committee on Ways and Means, said he and his colleagues have been meeting with Chairman Aaron Michlewitz, of Boston, but those meetings have been a little different depending on when they occurred.
