Luckily my daughter in law had the day off.
Normally I would take a grandson to O'Maley at
about 7:15 am on my way to the gym.
Today I got the city message on cell phone at 8:30
at the gym, an hour after I would have
dropped the kid off at O'Maley.
PS
Thank you. I just brought the trash barrel in.

I agree wouldn't it be better to put out the message that schools are closed before school start hours my call did not come til after 8am

Pretty much all of Newburyport, Salisbury, Ipswich, Rowley, Hamilton, Essex is out.

Outage map shows huge outage W. Glo to Essex and Manchester - I read that area is an intentional shutdown to facilitate repairs.

The transmission wires supplying much of Essex County have experienced multiple, storm-related failures. We are in communication with National Grid, but have no restoration ETA. This may become an extended outage; please plan accordingly.
