Here is the Really Bad news:

JCP&L Crews have been pulled for this area and  yesterdays estimate have been revised the new one is no restoration until Friday Nov. 9th with 222 on the 9th and 497 on Sat. Nov. 10th. For a total of 719. We currently have 956 out so that will leave 237 still out past Saturday. This is by far the worse number we have had. JCP&L will not share what streets will be on and when.  They have indicated that the numbers may not be accurate!

Don Lynch indicated to me on a conference call that he expects to be done by Sunday night or Monday morning>

Folks I have received over 75 Emails today and while I would love to communicate with you one on one  I can’t  answer everyone personally. Please include your Question and I will give you the answer I have or try to get you the most accurate one.  I will include you on this email blast if you like.


Have you spoken with the Governor’s office? Yes on a Daily Basis and also to Legislators, Members of Congress  they are well aware of the opportunities.

Have you been in touch with JCP&L?  Yes too many times per day.

Why don’t you have more accurate numbers? Because JCP&L doesn’t have accurate numbers. What they give me I send out to you.

When will I get power back….??? If I knew and it was accurate that I would be a  very popular.
