CL&P was not prepared for an event of this size. The worst-case scenario in the company’s emergency response plan considered outages over 100,000 customers, or less than 10 percent of their total customer base. More than two-thirds of its customers lost power as a result of the October snowstorm.
The report released Friday from Witt Associates, the Washington, D.C., firm that investigated the response from Connecticut Light & Power to the pre-Halloween snowstorm. Much of the state lost power — as many as 10 days for some residents. (via hartfordcourant)

Paint the state black. Made it out Monday. I bet my folks don’t get power until next week.

Here is a map from Connecticut Light & Power’s website showing power-outage percentages across the state, by town. The black areas are 80-100% without power; the purple areas 60-80%, and the brown areas 40-60%. Other shades have progressively lower outage totals, down to yellow (under 10%) and white (full power).
In my little town of Sherman, CT, I’ve been without power since Saturday evening, and may not get it restored for another week or more, based on the latest info I’ve heard.
