There is a saying here that Connecticut grows two things: trees and rocks. I can attest that both are in abundance.
I heard a knock at my front door a bit ago, and there was my neighbor asking me if I knew there was a tree across both of our driveways. Well, no, I didn’t. I was shocked.
I have been on the computer working on projects since 5:30 a.m. There was not even a flicker to the lights all morning. I still have internet, too. No interruption of service so far at all.
But there it is: a 40-foot tree hanging from the power lines, blocking the driveways.
I already called to report the situation to CL&P. Then I called my son’s school to inform him that he must skip track this afternoon as I probably wouldn’t be able to get out to pick him up. I don’t know how long it will take them to clear the tree off the power lines. I am hoping that they remove it from the driveways, but I am not positive of that, either. I might need to call someone to clear the rest of the tree from my driveway.
