Diana Fanning’s concert at the Salisbury Meeting House scheduled for Saturday, May 3, has been canceled.
The high winds on Monday, April 16, caused severe damage and power outages around the lake and along the Upper and Lower Plains Roads. The Lower Road was closed for several hours in the morning as crews worked to remove a large tree and a car damaged by the tree. Green Mountain Power and Consolidated Communications workers cleared the road but other trees along the road also came down causing more outages and work for the crews.
After having power interrupted several times during the day power was finally restored in the evening as the winds died down. Camp PointCounter Point had one of their cottages severely damaged by a direct hit from a large pine tree. While all of this mayhem was happening on the east side of town, the west side only received a few gusts. Thanks to all the crews for their hard work to provide us with continued service.
