Default Sleepers Island no power

FYI
We snowmobiled out to Sleepers Island and stayed over Saturday night.
There's no power on the island and it looks like it's been that way for some time.
All the docks that usually have circulators running are locked up solid.

NHEC has been alerted.

PS It was a great overnight and a gorgeous Sunday morning.

I'm sitting here looking at Sleepers now. The usual lights are on near the castle. I wasn't here this weekend, so I'm not sure if they were on then. Must be solar powered...

I think you're right. Many of us have solar lights that stay out all year.
NH Electric coop outage map still shows Alton as having 1 outage which is Sleepers Isl. I called NHEC and they say they'll check on the outage when conditions permit.

Got a call today that power on Sleepers Island has been restored.

Default Bubbler Restart

Is it likely that the restart of the bubblers will unlock the docks?

I was able to punch a hole in the ice in just a few hours with my circulator running off a generator. Now that the power is on,I hope that with consistent running and warmer temps this week it should open things up.
