UPDATED 5:15 p.m.
Framingham Centre Nursery School has power and will re-open Friday.
At noon, NSTAR reporting 234 customers in Framingham without power or less than 1%.
At 8 a.m., NSTAR had the numbers of customers without power down to 403.
NSTAR restored power to more than 1,000 customers on Wednesday, but as of 1:30 a.m. Thursday, 461 customers were still without power or 2% of the community.
The 2% without power is down from a high of 22% at 11 p.m. on Monday. NSTAR reports it has 29,674 customers in the Town of Framingham.
Two of those 2% are First Parish in Framingham Unitarian Universalist Church and Framingham Centre Nursery School.
During the height of the storm, a very large tree branch fell on the parish kitchen.
Since then the Meeting House, the Parish House and Framingham Centre Nursery School have been without power.
Tree removal and repairs have begun, but NSTAR had yet to be out to the church/nursery school, located on the edge of Framingham centre Common.
School was cancelled for the fourth day for little ones today, Nov. 1. The Halloween celebration was also cancelled.
"NSTAR said they would be by tomorrow (Thursday) - crossing my fingers that this will fix our problem!," wrote the nursery school on their Facebook page.
NSTAR told Framingham Town Manager Bob Halpin that everyone in Framingham should have power restored by the end of the day today, Nov. 1.
Halpin went out to survey NSTAR crews in Framingham Wednesday afternoon. He was happy to report that Potter Road and Eaton neighborhood, 104 customers, would have power before it was time to trick or treat.
Halpin said NSTAR told him they have 12 crews working in Framingham Wednesday.
Lake and Cove Avenue had power returned Wednesday afternoon, after more than 48 hours without power.
Melisa Hughes told Patch Mayo Street had power restored around dinner time, after having been without since 3:30 p.m. Monday.
But as of midnight Thursday, residents on Buckminster Street, a portion of Grove street and McAdams Road told Framingham Patch they were still in the dark.
For a few residents in the Oaks Neighborhood - they were living a nightmare on Halloween.
In May, they were the first neighborhood in Framingham to be on the cutting end of NSTAR's tree-trimming program to prevent outages. Many were devasted to see trees cut at a nearby park and playground.
And post Sandy, residents in the Oaks neighborhood on Bellefontaine Avenue were frustrated that two large trees were blocking their neighborhood and that NSTAR has yet to come out to test to see if the downed wires were live, playing havoc with the kids' Halloween plans.
Throughout Wednesday some residents complained to Framingham Patch that they lost power for the first time on Wednesday and didn't understand why they were losing power now, and not during the storm. Other residents questioned why NSTAR's numbers on those without power kept increasing and decreasing.
The best way to explain both is what I call the Christmas lights analogy. To fix a light that goes out on a string of Christmas lights, you need to unplug the entire string of lights to fix the one that goes out.
On Wednesday, some residents had already reached 48 hours without power and their frustration was growing with each hour without power. Kerry Dunne on McAdams Road, whom Patch featured in a report Wednesday, was still waiting.
"Still dark with tons of wires down and no visit from NSTAR," wrote Dunne on Framingham Patch's Facebook.
