When things are mess, and people are anxious — as in the wake of Storm Sandy — communication is of heightened importance.
UI and its workers — the linemen and tree crews from near and far — as well as the town and it's many good people, both workers and volunteers, deserve everyone's thanks. They worked long and hard under very tough circumstances. The work crews did make steady progress on a very nasty situation, clearing roads of trees and wires, putting up new poles, hanging wires, getting power back to people. The emergency folks got the shelter set up at the Community Center welcomed people for showers, coffee, overnight stays. Echo Hose Ambulance handed out emergency supplies to people who needed it.
