Very typical scene around here in southeastern MA as repair crews are still working around-the-clock to restore power on this day to anxiously awaiting customers.

Interesting note: Power demand in the six New England states was reduced by 4 megawatts on account of the very widespread outages during the height of the storm (10AM to 2PM period, EST) according to Independent Service Operator New England (ISO-NE).
