Funny because when I woke up today and read the JCP&L report, it said the majority of customers were supposed to get power today. Now it's tomorrow. Lol. $20 says when we get up tomorrow, they'll say that the majority will be restored this weekend

Why does a company with this kind of reputation still get to stay in business?

70 + 876 + 419 + 40 = 1,405 JCP&L says there are 1,413 customers are out... boy, I hope I'm not in the 8 that they've totally forgotten about. No wonder they can't get things worked out, they can't do basic math!

Heard all of this before....I think I am going to end up burning up a brand new generator. I didn't realize I would be buying one for one time use.

Another night without power up here on Stonybrook. I did hear that trees were removed on Waughaw. Hopefully, that means we are at least on the list. It really is horrendous service from JCP&L.

Cheryl Rd, Brittany Rd, Demoray, and Flanders residents NEED TO READ THIS... If you live on one of the streets mentioned and may have seen power for a short time on Thursday 11/1, like we did, you are one of the 70 homes that JCP&L told me are on the circuit that now has an "Underground Cable Fault". How do I know? I've lived on Brittany for 21 years and have seen and heard the "circuit breaker" on the pole between 47 and 49 Brittany Rd fail. I also spent about 30 minutes on the phone w JCP&L yesterday and they confirmed the Underground Cable Fault. Don't believe me? Stop by the pole between 47 and 49 Brittany and check out the Yellow Tag on the pole with "FAULT" written in black marker. If you think we will get Brittany Rd dug up before everyone else gets wires hung, think again. Time to start calling anyone and everyone about "OUR" JCP&L problem. Remember the Gov is up for re-election next year!

Hello JCP&L. You claim to make a record of my outage yet Weiss Drive still doesn't appear on any roster. I suspect the town will pressure JCP&L to restore as much power as possible prior to tomorrow's meeting in order to thin out the crowd and the complaints. Keeping my fingers crossed!

Power is now ON at Brittany Road. Hopefully also on Cheryl, Flanders, and Demoray. Tom

Well, it's 8:30pm on Friday on waughaw rd, which I believe is still a part of montville. Still dark and powerless in all senses of the word...
