75% of Wilton is still without power. It appears that CL&P is focusing their efforts on other towns, as this number has not been reduced at all.
On Monday night, I stopped at the grocery store in Wilton Center to purchase some ice cream. I went to the cashier with a pint of Ben & Jerry's in one hand and cash in the other. The cashier looked at me and said accusingly, "You have power!". I answered, "We never lost it". The young man looked startled and I said, "Maybe I shouldn't say that too loudly".
I mentioned that the restaurants in Wilton Center were packed and the cashier said, "It must be that people don't know how to cook, cause I know they have plenty of food at home. With the number of customers who were here on Thurs and Fri, I thought it was Thanksgiving."
