As usual, the linemen & women

As usual, the linemen & women performed well under awful conditions. We gratefully thank them. But - something is really wrong. There was about 4" rain. Not particularly excessive. The winds were reported to be 40-50 with a few 60 mph gusts. Not particularly excessive. SYSTEMIC failure it seems to me. Why wasn't CMP prepared for these conditions? They occur regularly every couple of years. This is a SYSTEMIC problem. When will the authorities insist that CMP do their job? Donald L. Anderson 116 Gurnet Landing Road Harpswell, ME 04079
