Default Power lines down on Welch

We lost power today while closing our camp on Welch (we were up for the week). I found a tree down along the power line at pole 16. Pretty sure the entire West side is down. Shortly afterwards another tree came down behind our house and took out our power line. I've opened a report with Eversource and he said they might be able to get out by Monday. I've got the genny running and plenty of firewood and scotch. Hopefully we can bug-out tomorrow morning after the wind dies down a bit.

Thanks for the update. If the phone line is down, what is your internet access? I don't see one of those taglines that says sent from my XYZ device.

This is just a followup.
Eversource and Consolidated Communications got the damaged power and phone lines repaired promptly after the storm. Usually within a day of notification. Eversource came out on a Sunday. Everything was fixed 1 day after notifying them

Great job guys.
