Westborough – It's been a long, long week for area residents as they anxiously waited to get their power restored after the Oct. 29 nor'saster. Helping to get Westborough back to normal were crews from Carr Duff Inc., based out of Pennsylvania.
This morning, several of the crews that had been working in the town gathered in the municipal parking lot behind the South St. Diner before getting started on another busy day.
The men had been in the state since Saturday, they said, and still had no definitive time on when they would be returning home. And they were fine with that, they all concurred.
Frederick Soglia, a superintendent with the company said, “We know people are frustrated not having power, but really, overall they have been great to us. [Westborough] has pretty much been restored – we are now waiting to see where we will be sent next to help out.”
John Sharkey, a utility construction supervisor with Buckley G5 Construction who was working with Carr Duff crews, said the crews are used to long, exhausting work weeks when storms such as the nor'saster hit..
“We just want people to know we are working hard,” he said. “We go wherever we'se needed and don's leave until we'se done.”
