This Past Weekend I had planned on attending the Society for Creative Anachronism Event outside Springfield Mass., Novice Schola but a weather “inconvenience” occurred.
Winter Storm Nemo- after digging out enough to get my vehicle out, I was deployed at our local Community Emergency Response Team Municipal Shelter.
I wound up being assigned the job of Shelter manager.
While we did not get the population of the full Red Cross Shelters in South Eastern Ct. we did also host the sub regional “War Room” of CL&P (one of the 2 big power companies)
The war room is where the supervisory team and team leaders coordinated the electricity restoration road crews.
We also hosted the “office space” for the Utilities liaison to the municipalities.
I returned home to find the snow waiting to be removed from the rest of my parking spaces (a project to work on before today’s rain starts)
