Yeah, our power was out friday from about 5:20 AM until 1:30 PM. We were actually just leaving to head south and scout out a hotel when the power came back on. Not bad at all though, all things considered. We live very close to a mall, so I think they tried to get to our area first... I consider us very LUCKY, with all the problems so many others are having. Virtually no damage around here, just some tree branches down in spots.

I teach up in Fitchburg though, and got a call from the superintendent yesterday afternoon cancelling school for Monday and Tuesday!! They've set up shelters in some of the schools, and I think most people up there are still without power/heat. While I certainly won't complain about the days off, I am really concerned about my students and their families. I haven't been up there yet, but I know Rte. 2 was completely shut down at some point. I'm going to drive up there tomorrow to get my check and see if there's anything I can do to help out.
