    Some fortunate Greater Boston residents, who went days without electrical service, are welcoming the restoration of power.

    Across the area, about 6,000 residents still have no electricity. The cold temperatures have tested their endurance.

    "I was teetering on the border of insanity," quipped one resident.

    Widespread outages were reported throughout Massachusetts and New England following a one-two punch over the past week of strong nor'easter storms. 

    Following last week's storm, there were 450,000 residents without electricity in Massachusetts alone. 

    As of Sunday morning, the situation had dramatically improved. In Connecticut, 3,121 remained without service Sunday morning, but electrical service was expected to return across the state by 11 p.m., according to Eversource.

    There were only a few dozen customers without power in Rhode Island and Maine. New Hampshire and Vermont are fully restored.
