Deval was scheduled to pop out to Blandford, MA (a "surprise" trip- perhaps to avoid boot-throwing
terrorists residents who have been without power since Thursday night?) to check out the storm damage. Instead, he cancelled his trip. Why? Bad weather: temperatures pushing 50 degrees, 10mph winds, and "slight chance of rain showers" were enough to keep the governor's helicopter away. Ah, such an arduous journey by car, those two hours.
This evening will mark 96 hours since the storm, the number of people without power is going up, and as of this morning, the national guard had only cleared
87 100 miles of road.
