STORM UPDATE/RIPTON DOWN
As of 9:00 this morning the entire Ripton network is down. Battery backup power at the Old Town Road relay was exhausted overnight. Ironically, doubling the battery backup capacity there is imminent as that location is now carrying the significantly greater electrical load of a radio relay for the Fire Department's emergency services communications--in fact the new battery cabinet was shipped on Friday, two days ago.
Service will be restored as soon as Green Mountain Power restores grid power. They are now predicting restoral at 11:55am.
