  1. Power, knocked out late last night by the high winds, was restored just after 8 this morning. Hurray for the crews out in that wind that worked hard in the wee hours to ensure we have power this Christmas. Sure, that’s their job, but we’re appreciative of them, thank them and wish them a very Merry Christmas.
