Power at the Edges

Irony of ironies: I’m sitting here in Dublin, New Hampshire, where the power goes out all the time, especially in the winter, and often for hours and even days at a time. Dublin, after all, has “the highest elevation of any village center in New Hampshire.”

And the power is on.

Meanwhile, in New York, Boston, Toronto, Kenora, Timmins, Detroit and all points between the power is out.

Nah, New Hampshire doesn’t lose the electricity. They may mourn losing their Old Man of the Mountain but they don’t worry about losing electricity…. live free or die, eh?
