(NEWARK, NJ – Dec. 8, 2014) Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G), New Jersey’s largest electric and gas utility, is preparing for the approaching storm system expected to hit the region tomorrow morning through Wednesday morning, bringing with it the potential for heavy rain and strong winds.
 
In anticipation of the storm, PSE&G is ensuring that all available personnel are ready to respond beginning early tomorrow morning. The utility is also ensuring that additional supplies, including poles and transformers, are on hand. 
 
 
PSE&G urges its customers to be cautious if they see downed lines. Downed wires should always be considered “live.” Do not approach or drive over a downed line and do not touch anything that it might be in contact with. 
 
To report downed wires or power outages, customers should call PSE&G’s Customer Service line at 1-800-436-PSEG. Customers can also report power outages and view the status of their outage by logging in to My Account on www.pseg.com, PSE&G’s mobile-friendly website.

 
PSE&G offers the following tips to customers to prepare:
 
Charge your cell phones, tablets and other mobile devices.
 
Fill up your car’s fuel tank.
 
Ensure you have a battery-powered radio and a supply of fresh batteries.
 
Check your supply of flashlights, blankets, nonperishable food and bottled water for everyone in your family.
 
Put your refrigerator and freezer at the coldest setting. Keep a blanket handy to throw over these appliances for added insulation. If electricity is interrupted, keep refrigerator and freezer doors closed as much as possible.
 
Compile a list of emergency phone numbers, including PSE&G’s Customer Service line: 1-800-436-PSEG. Call this number to report power outages or downed wires.
 
PSE&G offers its customers a number of ways to stay in touch and stay informed before, during and after a storm. These tools can be found at www.pseg.com in the “Storm Center,” under “How you can stay connected.”
Sign up for My Account and bookmark the mobile-friendly homepage on your smart phone so it’s easy to report outages and check restoration progress.

Updated every 15 minutes, PSE&G’s online “Outage Map” displays the location and status of power outages in PSE&G’s service territory.

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
