A downed wire snakes along the wet sidewalk in front of Mio Vino in Altamont after Tuesday’s downpour. The wire had come loose from the utility pole across Main Street from the popular eatery. Firefighters blocked off the area with orange cones until National Grid could repair the damage. Captain Curtis Cox of the Guilderland Police said that Wednesday morning, the day after the storm, a primary power line came down along Route 20 near Prospect Hill Cemetery. It “snarled traffic,” he said until police set up generators to run traffic lights until National Grid could make repairs. Although Cox did not know if the outage was related to the storm, he said, “In my experience, sometimes a storm will weaken wires.”
