‘Juno’ baby gets special gift
Restoring power to Nantucket during and after the record-setting storm Juno swept through the island was no easy task. From chopping ice off of frozen-over transformers to braving the brutal cold and blustering winds to put the island back online, National Grid employees dedicated long, challenging days to restoration.
But it wasn’t our linemen and other operations workers in the field who had the hardest jobs during the blizzard, said Nantucket Operations Supervisor Steve Holdgate.
“I told the mom that she had the hardest job during the blizzard and wanted to congratulate her on a job well-done,” said Steve, who on Feb. 4 delivered a National Grid-themed gift for baby Cayden Keith Moore. The customized basket contained National Grid mementos along with a signed card from crews who worked on the island during the storm.
“It appeared they were suspecting a visit, because we were calling around to friends and relatives asking were they lived,” Steve said. “They could see my truck in the driveway and opened the door for me. They were very appreciative.”
