A week after the freak October snowstorm, power has still not been restored to the wealthy suburbs that surround the impoverished Hartford city core.

Malloy said Sunday that he had received complaints from many town leaders who said that they were misled by the utility about how many crews were working in their towns, when work would be completed and when power would be restored.

Col. John Whitford, a spokesman for the National Guard, said Sunday that the troop's focus had shifted somewhat from Simsbury and Avon to Windsor Locks, Enfield and Farmington.

CL&P had wrestled outages down below the 10 percent level by Saturday night, restoring power to tens of thousands of people but still leaving a number of towns from the Farmington Valley east to the Massachusetts border still largely cold and dark.


I doubt there'd be as much consternation if it was the poor folk freezing in the dark.
