Milford Oval remains in the dark
MILFORD - The Milford Oval is in the dark after a visit from Hurricane Sandy, and downed trees across town are causing problems for drivers and utility workers.
On Union Street, traffic is being diverted around a large, downed tree that took down wires and has left the road impassible. Some businesses on the Oval, including the Riverhouse Cafe and the Union Street Grill, are relying on generators to keep their doors open, but most of the storefronts are dark.
Coming into town on Route 13 between Milford and Mont Vernon, traffic is down to one lane due to a tree lying precariously on a power line over the roadway, and behind the VFW on Perkins Street, a tree has snapped in half and taken lines down with it.
There are plenty of places open to grab a hot cup of coffee, breakfast, or to stock up on supplies, but many businesses along Nashua Street are in the dark. On Elm Street, the sign on the Rustic Leaf Bistro summed up the situation with a message that said, "We are Closed. No Power. Thanks a lot Sandy."
