The sun is shining, the streets have been cleared of larger tree limbs, but many residents of East Greenwich are still without power. If the Emergency Management Agency press conference is to be believed, it may be a while - several days - before power is back on for everyone.
Most of Main Street is back on line, as is the Dave's plaza on Division at South County Trail. Last night, Stop & Shop on Frenchtown was open and the Wendy's there had a line of cars curled around the drive back into the main entrance for the drive-thru.
At Custom House Coffee this morning, Seth Feder, who lives on Larch Road, recounted his travels from place to place yesterday morning, looking for electricity. After he lost power at home, he went to Felicia's. "I was the last person to get coffee," he said, when suddenly there was a loud pop and the power was gone.
Next stop for Feder was the Dunkin' Donuts on Main Street. Again, after a few minutes there, they lost power. Feder ended up at the Dunkin' Donuts on Division at South County Trail, which did not lose power.
The Hill is without power this morning, which means that this Prospect Street resident is more mobile than usual, looking for juice as well as stories. So, EG Patch needs your help. If you have stories, pictures, tips - post them here or send them to email@example.com.
