To the Times of Ti:
I would like to take the time to give thanks to Ti Fire Department, National Grid and Altec. Early Tuesday morning, Nov. 27, a block away, tree branches snapped power lines which sent a surge through the wires. The utility pole immediately in front of my house gave off three loud thunderous bangs that woke the whole neighborhood and had many in a panic whether to even return back into their house. The top of the pole lit up the night sky like the fourth of July with sparks raining down along with the freezing rain.
Within minutes Michael Watts Sr. was on the scene along with Ti Fire Department and both electrical services standing in that freezing rain at 3 a.m. making sure we were safe and had power service back in a very timely manner.
We are often quick to criticize thankless jobs and I think jobs like yours do not receive the gratitude it often deserves. Thank you very much for your efforts. It could’ve been a distressing Thanksgiving Day!
