    Was talking to a person that should know, but I wish I could find out the truth. He told me that the union that oversees the line-workers won't allow underground lines. Says it can't undermine the jobs repairing downed lines!

    Websites are very little good when we are without power! A very challenging day for the crews to keep our lights on. Kudos to all the repairpeople braving the ice and snow to keep us warm and out of the dark.
