ADDISON COUNTY — As of Friday night Green Mountain Power was expecting to have service restored to all but a handful of its Addison County customers, even though 400 homes, businesses and farms were still making do without electricity at about 10 a.m.

GMP spokesperson Dorothy Schnure said the company was focusing on Addison County on Friday because only another roughly 200 of its customers elsewhere in Vermont still lacked power after Monday morning’s major windstorm turned off electricity to more than 118,000 GMP customers and snapped 100 power poles in half.

Posted on November 6, 2017 |
By Addison Independent



Fireplaces and wood-burning stoves not only can be beautiful focal points within a home, but they also provide an additional source of heat and can be used to keep rooms or entire homes comfortable without the need for additional and potentially costly heating sources.
