Actual LIPA workers have been in town getting out the kinks in the system in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. LIPA worker Cathy above has been working tirelessly, while she still has no power herself, in Long Beach.
A few people who are ready were still trying to get their power restored as of yesterday.
It turns out on more than a few blocks, homeowners turned on their electric service breakers BEFORE they got their power back, causing a massive load and immediate automatic disconnect to their and their neighbors’ houses.
how are things going for you?
