The storm forecast was made days earlier.The concerned electric companies should have anticipated the likely damages and should have placed adequate teams with necessary equipment at pre determined locations.A very pathetic response by companies.

I agree, every big storm NSTAR drops the ball. Grade F Snow plow came down my street once (1) Friday night and did a horrible job. That was the last time we saw the snow plow. DPW get checkers to check on the hired contract snow plow drivers because they are horrible. Grade F No excuse for a snow plow to come once at the beginning of the storm. It's the responsibility of DPW to check all roads. Main roads Grade C Side roads F A lot of room for improvement.
