Many are from out of town and out of state, so you may not see ConEd trucks, but other utility trucks such as Pike. These are the people who are going to get us back 100%. We understand the frustration of those who think they are the last to get power, but that is not the case, we still have neighborhoods out.  Some have more complicated issues than others."

Love Croton but they dropped the ball on this one. Still no power heading into storm #2.

5 out of state electrical trucks on Mt. Airy Road in Croton yesterday evening. They told my neighbor they were leaving without doing anything because Con Ed told them they don't want them working in the dark. I've also heard it said that Con Ed won't pay out of state crews OT. Funny how they are broadcasting ads saying they are working 24/7. Maybe they should be spending some of their PR budget on repairs.

Going 10 days without power is absolutely ridiculous. It's like we live in the dark ages. And, now Storm #2 threatens. People in the worst hit areas of New Jersey seem to have power by now.
