  1. the slightest rain or drizzle in lakewood causes power outages- im guessing they fixed the wires with tape after hurricane sandy!! its time for them to replace the wires asap!!

  2. One has to hope they have power for the holiday and that agents don’t have to spend their holiday fixing badly repaired wires. Hope everyone has a nice time home with their family.

  3. Anyone selling caves around here?? I think it may be time to go back to the good ol’ days when we never had to freak out everytime another modern luxury wasn’t readilt available 😉

  4. When the power went out in my area several times it definitely brought back memories of the hurricane/snowstorm but it also reminded me once again how much we take everything that Hashem gives us for granted. Let’s appreciate every minute of light that we have!!

  5. We had flickering most of last night, but no power outage. Brace yourself for a difficult year or years to come, as JCP&L addresses all of the issues that caused outages from Sandy and the Nor’easter.

    I believe that they made temporary fixes to get power restored ASAP. Permanent corrective fixes are yet to come,

  6. Problem was isolated to the transmission side of the substation. As for “I believe that they made temporary fixes to get power restored ASAP. Permanent corrective fixes are yet to come,” All storm related damages in the local area to the distribution system have been corrected . All the bandaids have been removes. It now depends on Mother nature, poles that jump in front of cars, or equipment life.

  7. JCP&L only fixed the storm damaged power lines with whatever the insurance company would pay for. So if the Insurance Companies did not say they would pay JCP&L just put a band-aid on the repair, hoping the next insurance claim will pay for more.
