As I was walking ShadowDog Christmas Eve around 6pm, I heard voices and look over to a near-by parking lot, it was five of the bucket trucks working the Augusta area regrouping and talking to dispatch. Late tonight, a friend of mine who works for CMP as ‘essential personal’ will be coming to my house to catch a few hours of sleep after working part of Christmas Day.
CMP gets big credit from me on ice storm related stuff. They learned many lessons in the Ice Storm of 98. As of about 3am Dec 23, CMP was reporting a total of 226 outages in their total service area. CMP does a great job of letting us know where the outages are. Check out the CMP Outage Information page right here.
