Well, I went and hid in the mountains, and just got back to southern NH. The scene here is astounding. Gas lines, no stop lights or street lights, whole sections of drive just dark. Limbs are down everywhere. Mountains seemed to dodge the bullet, so trails will likely be fine this winter north of the Ossipees...

Our place got power and internet last night, so went and cleaned out the fridge...freezer seemed fine. We are lucky...most of my coworkers have no power still, and my high school is a shelter. I feel fortunate to have heat and water today, and may go see if I can help out somewhere today...lots of that going on too which is great!

I've heard reports that parts of southwest NH may be lucky to be fully restored by x-mas...such a huge task!
