Download Audio

As of late Monday afternoon, about 450,000 utility customers across Massachusetts remained without power due to the weekend snowstorm. Two communities in the state that lost almost all their power in the untimely Nor'easter were Marlborough and Charlton, whose mayor and town administrator, respectively, spoke with WBUR's All Things Considered host Sacha Pfeiffer about the storm's aftermath there.

Pfeiffer also spoke with the president of National Grid in Massachusetts, Marcy Reed, about the frustration in some municipalities — including Charlton — over the pace at which the utility is working to restore power.

This program aired on October 31, 2011.
