Uh... no it's not.....
The government, any government has certain responsibilities with regards to it's citizens. In a situation like this, they are morally and legally responsible to render any and all assistance, and to ensure that life is protected.
Just as people are expecting the government to do their jobs and rightfully so, we also expect that places like CL&P and ConEd will do theirs, and not tender excuses, they get paid ot do that job and they should do it. End of story.
So it's not idiotic to expect the officials WE the people vote for to do these things, to actually do them when needed.
It's their job to... plain and simple.
