Getting a Streetlight Fixed

There are two streetlights that illuminate the cove. They are very convenient for boaters who come in after dark, but at this time of year, they just do a nice job of providing a pleasant warm glow. One of the streetlights has been out for a couple of weeks, so I finally called the Gloucester DPW. They said Mass Electric (Now National Grid) handles this, but they would pass along the information. The DPW said it usually takes 8-10 days--so I was quite surprised to see a repair truck out tonight at 8:30 PM with someone working on the light. Now, I find this pretty amazing, given that it was dark, cold (25F) and windy (probably 15-20 MPH). Now the glow is back.


  • Those of us who walk our dogs around the cove late at night certainly appreciate whoever it was that night for fixing the light.

  • That work order bubbled up pretty quick. They must run a second shift as a matter of course. The guy fixed the light at the end of Andrews too (I was hoping he would miss that one--it shines in my bedroom window). Anyway, it has to be a pretty tough job, something we all probably take for granted.
