By Nikita R Stewart

Power outages were stretching across the region and into Hillcrest, where Mayor Vincent C. Gray (D) lives.

Gray, who is taking some heat for not declaring a snow emergency Wednesday evening, got home after criss-crossing the city and troubleshooting overnight, and discovered that he, too, was affected by the power outages, said Linda Wharton-Boyd, his spokeswoman.
