Not surprisingly, the same event affected Maine. The lines to Washington
country went down under load, and tree damage in the Lewiston-Auburn to
Augusta to Belfast was so pervasive that power restoration took an average
of two weeks. I lived in Belfast, ours was down for 17 days. The icing was
worse in Southern Quebec. Thanks for the reminder of the month when people
shared. I benefited by a cord of wood from my neighbor.
As for the environmentally friendly label on hydro-power, I trust Randy is
not referring to Hydro-Quebec power, or at least not hydro-power that has
a cost of mercury uptake in Cree communities in Northern Quebec.
Oh, pro-nuke raving and so forth isn't one of this lists stronger points.
