Around 7:30 p.m., Rose sent out an urgent plea:
All of lower Allston just went dark! Send beer and pizza.
Soon, other residents of Allston and Brighton were checking in - via 4G rather than WiFi - of a sudden absence of electricity in the area.
By 9 p.m., power was coming back to most of the area, although some spots near Market Street remained dark until 9:30.
