Wow, so much as happened since I last checked on here last night! It was interesting and sad catching up on all of the posts. Stay safe everyone in
NYC and NJ! You have a rough road ahead.
Here in Southeast PA, the wind is still blowing but not nearly as bad as last night. Power is out everywhere. We are one of the few lucky ones,
according to everyone I have been in contact with. We still have power here! But my parents, brother's family, and other friends are all out of
power. The place I work is out of power, and they say it will be at least a few days.
This is the count from our power company right now, although they have been working all night, and the count was higher earlier:
There are currently 396302 customers out of power in 28 counties.
I will see what I can do to help the others, but they are saying to stay off the roads. There are so many power lines and trees down that travel is
Since I am one of the few with electric, I posted the update re. our company closing on our local news site's list. There is a very long list, so it
appears everything is shut down around here. I was also supposed to update our phone message at work, but all I get is that "All circuits are busy"
message, so I guess phone lines are down too. I talked to one person so far today who has a land line, and her phone company is out of service, but
her cell is working! So much for using land-lines in an emergency.
ETA: The phones not working at the place I work is not due to power. I know the generators are running there, and the phone system and routers are
on generator. Someone has already checked that the generator is working.
