Our family was only without power for most of Tuesday. We were lucky. No giant trees blocked us into our neighborhood. They only made it inconvenient to get around town. Or even to get to the next town as I found out when I tried to get to Hillsborough last night. We got power back fairly quickly — after only about 8 hours. Others (see Ruby writing in Orange Politics) were still looking for electricity this evening. And even today there was still clean up of trees and broken power poles underway on Franklin Street.
