Last week’s snowstorm stopped runners in their tracks, knocked out power to about 3,000 electric customers, and put a damper on some Halloween fun. The 23d annual Canton Fall Class Road Race, which had been set for Sunday, was postponed to 10 a.m. today, starting at Temple Beth Abraham. Police Chief Charles Doody said his department received about 20 weather-related requests for assistance and, at the height of the storm, about 3,000 were without electricity. As of Wednesday afternoon, all but 53 homes, mostly in the Indian Lane neighborhood, had had their power restored and communication with NStar was greatly improved from Tropical Storm Irene, according to Board of Selectmen chairman John J. Connolly. Although the town’s annual Halloween parade was canceled on Sunday, trick or treating was held as usual. - Elaine Cushman Carroll
