MARSHFIELD (CBS) – Kids can get their costumes ready for trick-or-treating. Governor Charlie Baker said Halloween is expected to go as planned after he toured Marshfield on Saturday and spoke to power crews.

“Tomorrow night should go pretty much according to plan,” Baker said, adding that most people should see their power restored by midnight Saturday.

Joe Nolan, CEO and president of Eversource, concurred. “We made a commitment that Halloween would not be canceled on my watch.”

Marshfield Town Administrator Michael Maresco said the town’s crews would be cleaning up to make sure trick-or-treating was safe for children Sunday night.

Baker said as he toured the South Shore and the Cape after the Nor’Easter that battered the area Tuesday and Wednesday, he saw intense damage, including trees on power lines and downed poles.

“The thing I’m most pleased with is both Eversource and (National) Gris said they’d be back by the time we got to midnight, plus or minus on Saturday, and it looks like they’re going to get there.”

However, Plymouth resident Greg Barnes is one of those waiting. He has his generator on and is using his grill to cook.

“We’re just trying to get along with everyone else,” Barnes said. “Don’t get hopes up too much. Our neighbors have had power on the last couple of days, so I don’t know really what the issue is.

Eversource says there are pockets of outages — scattered homes within its service area with issues that may go beyond the storm.

Going forward, Baker said, the state needs to look at how much foliage is on the South Shore and how deep power lines need to go through the foliage to see if there’s something that can be done.
