NSTAR sure knows how to pick the right night to suddenly tell people it's cutting power to some 2,000 homes:
A few minutes ago we received a phone call from City Councilor Denise Simmons. NSTAR informed her that tonight they would shut down power to Area 4, affecting 2000 households with no warning. They claim that 'it's gonna go out anyway' and that they need to make undefined 'repairs'.
If you think this might be a bit on the unacceptable side, there's a community meeting on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at the Area 4 Youth Center at Harvard and Essex.
