Utility company and its crews deserve praise

To the editor:

We will all remember the great blizzard of 2015 for years, but we should not forget that a major inconvenience did not turn into a major disaster because of the preventive maintenance by Central Maine Power and its contractors. I have never seen such a prolonged period of high winds without widespread power outages.

Such a result is not an accident, and the fact that we avoided tragedies (and possibly fatalities) was due to brilliant planning and execution by CMP and its crews. Thank you.
