After the weekend storm, Mike Biscotti decided he'd had enough.
Coolidge Drive resident Mike Biscotti was tired of losing power, so he took the step: he bought a generator for his house. Coolidge Drive has seen some tough times in recent months: first, Hurricane Irene's destruction. Then Saturday's snowstorm caused power outages and unsafe road conditions. Biscotti said he was fed up with losing power for several days during these storm situations and decided he would stop having to rely on the power company in emergency situations.
Acton Patch spoke with some Coolidge Drive residents about the destruction on their street after Saturday's snowstorm.
Acton resident, Judy Dembsey, Coolidge Drive, Acton, talked with Acton Patch about the disaster on her street. We also caught up with Emily and Stephanie Burney of Coolidge Drive, and talked with them about what it's like to live without power. Several large trees snapped-off and fell on wires, causing most of the homes on the street to lose power. Click here for an Acton Patch video about the destruction on Wilson Lane. As of 3:15 p.m., Monday, 2,206 Acton NSTAR customers remain without power. NSTAR said that total power restoration to the town of Acton will be sometime in the evening of Nov. 2.
