Registry & Courthouse to open at noon

In accordance with the Trial Court's decision yesterday morning that all courts would close at noon yesterday and reopen at noon today, the Middlesex North Registry of Deeds will be open for business at noon.  Before leaving last night, we completely shut down all servers to prevent damage in the event of an extended power outage.  We came in today at 10 am to assess the situation.  The building has power and all the computers and servers have been brought online.  There were only three efiles waiting for us, so we've already processing them.  Given the number of phone calls inquiring of our status that we've already received this morning, I expect a surge of customers right at noon today. 

It looks like Lowell and Greater Lowell escaped the storm with relatively little damage although thousands of people are without power with no estimate of when it will be returned.
