WESTON, Conn. – More than 2,500 Connecticut Light & Power and United Illuminating Company customers remained without power in Weston, Easton and Redding Monday morning, a week after Hurricane Sandy brought strong winds, rain and flooding to the area.

Customers can also call 800-286-2000 for the status of their outage. In previous statements, CL&P officials said they expected to have most power restored to customers by Tuesday

Still without power. The only reason I would like the polling stations online before my house is so that we can vote Obama out of office and the democrats
currently running Westons First Selectman office.

Change is something we need (and certainly havent had) in this country. Its a mess right now.

Get out and vote for Mitt Romney. Your country needs you
