A fix for NJ sufferers

PostBy: coalnewbie On: Fri Nov 02, 2012 10:36 am

All ye in NJ who are suffering this morning as FEMA is nowhere to be found (yawn) take note. I am renting planes to fly to Kabul where if even your light bulb goes out a private contractor from Haliburton will have it fixed by lunchtime. O will send you a private note apologizing for the fact that the bulb blew out in the first place. Just get over to Newark (it's not called liberty in my book), a better life awaits. They even let you kill our troops for sport.

It's getting bad. The little gas station I've been going to for the past two days I sent my wife to this morning. There is now a line. She's been there for an hour. That's it. We've officially exhausted our gas possibilities. They need to restore power so that the gas stations that don't have power but gas can start operating again. Next week I won't be able to go to work.

I was under the impression everything was taken care of in NJ???

A six man crew from Decatur Utilities headed up there this week, but Derrick Moore, one of the Decatur workers, said they were told by crews in New Jersey that they can't do any work there since they're not union employees.

If some of the most popular generators are those that run on gasoline, why are all of the gas stations sitting there helpless and without electricity. They (better than anyone else) should be able to fuel generators 24/7, no?

Catch 22 they need gas to run the generator but they need the generator to get the gas?

On last night's news they showed a gas station, maybe it was even a WAWA that had no power. This was either in Quakertown or up near Allentown. So they brought in a trailered genset to get the whole place up and running. Problem solved. Locals could get gas and not have to travel to the next town for it.

i realize that this happened here in PA and not in the People's Republic of NJ. But seriously, difficult times require some thinking out of the box and waiving of certain policies and procedures to get the recovery started.

Wasn't it last year when New England towns were cut off due to flooding. And the people themselves gathered the men and machines and reclaimed the roads themselves without waiting for the 2 year study on the effect the new rebuilt road would have on the spotted toad or the split tongued salamander?? They figured that they would deal with the government later. But they wanted out of town and were not going to wait for someone to come get them. The true american spirit of cooperation and community involvement took place and they all banded together for a common cause. Take care of themselves !!!!!

That is just such SOP here in my area, I get amazed when I hear some of the stories-- I guess it just takes people getting fed up & saying--"*censored*--it"--we'll do it ourselves

While I feel for the people affected by Sandy I have to wonder just how much of their suffering is from people not planning for this hurricane?

We have a stock of supplies at our house. Batteries, candles, firewood, coal, water, food and fuel to last at least 6 months. To me it is common sense. Perhaps that is the problem?

I have supplies at my house too. But then neither of us had our house washed away or as CNN put it "burned to the water line" did we?

Then you have to think about where the apartment dwellers are going to store food in a 400sq ft efficiency.

In any event, it sucks for all involved.

All they would need to do would be to have the generator pre-filled with gasoline. It doesn't sound much like rocket science.

First thing is each station has to have a generator. then they have to nail it down to prevent theft and same for the fuel in it and then someone needs to be hired with enough brains to maintain and exercise the unit. Just gets to involved with Babbu running the quicky mart. Probably could be worked out if they were made aware of the $ they make when the power is out and they aint. Certainly works for a couple of private stations in the Machias area. But they have no Babbu's, just greedy capitalist.
