How Do You Feel About The Response To Sandy? [POLL]

As I write this, JCP&L reports that over 600,000 of their customers are still without power. I have seen crews working on the monumental task day and night since the storm subsided.

We were warned at the outset of the storm that we should be prepared to be without power for 7-10 days, and many of us are in day 8 as we speak. None of us are used to something taking this long to be fixed, but this storm has thrown any normal expectations of anything right out the door.

In many places substations couldn’t be fixed and had to be rebuilt from the ground up. I have seen crews who made the trip to the Jersey Shore to help out from Ohio and Texas and they look exhausted. The work is non stop and the job is huge.

For me, I think the job being done is about as good as can be expected under the circumstances. And by the way, I am one of those 600,000 without power this morning. And to me the effort being put forth by these exhausted workers is second to none.

What do you think?
