I'm thinking the only way to safely keep fish in CT is to have a backup generator for these situations. Luckily, UI is much better than CL&P at keeping their infrastructure fairly up to date. Do you realize that in much of the country, power companies are required by law to actually trim trees ahead of time so that any tree falling has no possibility of damaging power lines? It's a shame that CT power companies are reactive instead of proactive about trees. I would think that trimming ahead of time would actually make business sense - I mean trimming a tree is much cheaper than replacing blown up transformers, right?
