There's scary, and there's SCARY. Trick-or-treating without light of any kind (street lights, house lights, etc.) may be a bit much. So those residents without power are wondering what to do?
One idea is to travel to a neighborhood with power. Another is to postpone Halloween for a day or two or three.
There are still about 600 residences without electricity, according to National Grid's power outage map. More than a 100 North Tiverton homes are still in the dark on Wednesday. Add that to the darkened houses in the Lake and South Lake road neighborhoods along with other scattered outages around town for a total 478 Tiverton customers still with no power.
Power is largely restored to the Little Compton area, but several Adamsville neighborhoods along with Amesbury Lane homes and other scattered outages around town left 157 customers still in the dark on Halloween.
Gov. Lincoln Chafee issued a press release encouraging caution tonight.
"Our state is still dealing with the effects of Hurricane Sandy. These include extensive damage to roadways and sidewalks, fallen trees, downed power lines, and widespread power outages. Anyone out – whether driving or on foot – in areas with debris and without power must exercise extreme caution and vigilance."
What do you think – should everything proceed as usual or should we postpone Halloween until power's restored?
