As of this morning 65,000 people are still without power in Massachusetts, of those 400 of them are our residents at Village Green. As much as we were all told to prepare for Hurricane Irene, it's still hard to visualize what it would actually be like to live without modern conveniences. Below is a list of places you can go to get through while National Grid works to get the power back on.
