Small world! I've actually only lived here for a year and a half; moved right after the wedding in June of '07. I'm from Ohio originally. But I know where most of those places are that you listed!! LOL.
I got a call Tuesday saying that they were cancelling school for the rest of the week! And I talked to one of my private students who lives close to Fitchburg. She said all the main roads were closed up until today because there were so many trees down. She doesn't have full power at her house yet... lots of people up there don't. I guess Worcester is a mess too. I feel very lucky that I live far enough south/east that we got hardly anything, but awful for my coworkers, students, and their families who are stuck without heat and electricity, especially so close to the holidays.
