In Maine, during the Ice Storm of 1998 when we were without power for 14 days here; people were giving linesman coffee and meals to show gratitude. I am just guessing here, but I think Maine's methods might get the power on a little bit faster because a little generosity goes a long way in motivating people.

Note: I know that this is just an isolated incident, and I am sure there are plenty of people in NY giving linesman meal and coffee and being appreciative of the linesman's efforts that are just not being reported on.

They were talking about a class action suit against the power co for not being prepared . What about the accountability of the people themselves to be prepared and ready to take care of themselves in an emergency. That case should never even be considered.

Most of those FEMA trailers were auctioned off by the GSA years ago, at one time there would be several hundred every month.

Here is some more gratitude from Connecticut. They don't spell it out in the paper about who did this, but; just fill in the blanks. A little egg on their face.

No lawsuits in Maine, but after the 1998 ice storm the PUC got serious about making the power company trim trees along their lines. If the company had been doing a proper job all along there might have been many fewer outages.
