Power Still Out for 33 Households
As of this morning, National Grid reports that 33 'customers' in Barrington still had no electrical power even as cleanup efforts continued.
Cleanup from tropical storm Sandy continued in Barrington on Wednesday even as 33 National Grid customers scattered all over town still had no electrical power as of this morning.
Most of the outages also did not have a repair crew assigned, according to the National Grid power outage map for Rhode Island. So the time for the estimated restoration of power -- shown as 6 am on Nov. 2 -- seemed to be just that, an estimate.
The number of actual outages actually more than doubled during the day on Wednesday, then dropped by about a hundred overnight. The number of National Grid customers remained at about 33 with each of the 20 or so outages having an impact of no more than a household or two.
While Barrington residents waited to get their power back on, there were tree companies all over town cleaning up or trimming back fallen branches or trees. At least the sound of sump pumps seemed to have died out.
Many streets and roads were still littered with tropical storm-blown leaves – especially neighborhoods on the northeast side of Barrington. Trick-or-treaters were not expected to have run into any serious obstacles when they went door to door last evening.
