www.ParamusPost.com drove through the lot taking pictures of the many trucks that were still in the lot. I didn’t stop to ask if they were finished or not and if they were heading back to Florida. After all, PSE&G has said that 99% of the homes and business have their power restored.
The supplies were amazing! Thousands of feet of wire, transformers , insulators, telephone poles and much more electrical equipment were still to be seen on the grounds. It is something like this that gives one a perception of the amount of planning, supplying and preparing the crews were involved in to get power back to their customers.
While being without power is frustrating, one still has to give credit to these crews and to Public Service for their combined efforts to restore electricity back to normal. Can you imagine the cost of fuel for these trucks plus other states that have pitched in to help? Mileage per gallon for a vehicle that size is not very economical.
