Strong winds – gusting as high as 50 mph at times – knocked down trees and cut power to thousands throughout Southern New Hampshire overnight.
Public Service of New Hampshire said it is working to restore power to 4,411 affected customers. Nashua still has 1,142 outages as of 8:15 a.m. Other towns affected include: Londonderry: 1,312; Derry: 219; Hollis: 231; Auburn: 117; Hudson: 89.
As of 8 a.m. Thursday, Unitil was reporting nearly 1,000 of its customers without power, including nearly 800 in Exeter, East Kingston, Kensington and South Hampton. New Hampshire Electric Co-op reported another 1,025 outages.
Liberty Utilities has just 21 New Hampshire outages at this time, all of them in Grafton County.
... Or as Shakespeare once said:
"Blow, blow, thou winter wind,
Thou art not so unkind
As man’s ingratitude..."
[Hey, Shakespeare: Man would have more gratitude if the power didn't always go off.]
