I'm in the same exact boat!! We lost power on Saturday night. Here is is Thursday afternoon and still no power. Our oh, so smart and great
governor, Mr. Christie vowed to have all of NJ powered back up by today. So, my wife calls the great useless power company JCP&L and asks, "WTF is going on?" they reply with, "It might be on Friday or Saturday."
FRIDAY OR SATURDAY!?!?! Seriously?
But when you look around us, the entire county, or most of it has power. My entire town has power but not the lake where I live. And they say, "MAYBE"???
So much for governor Chris Christie's promise of having it all back on. But like you said, they'll probably say that it was 100% when in fact it was not.
I swear to god, if I had enough money to put enough solar panels on my roof to power my house indefinitely I'd do it and pull myself off the *censored* grid permanently.
We lost power for 6 days after Hurricane Irene.
We lost power for 4 days after tropical storm Carl.
We lost power for 2 days after the rain storm after Carl.
Now we're back up to 5-7 days without power after the "Goosey Night" snow storm.
Anyone else see a pattern with JCP&L (First Energy)?
I know we have a member on here who works for First Energy, nothing against him. But the company sucks as a whole. NJ legislature should do something to get them out of NJ.
