Sandy is the storm of all storms!!! Lipa is actually paying for us to take the train home for thanksgiving so we can spend the day with our loved loves and then take the train back on Friday to get back on double time. In all my years of line work I have never seen this. I guess that's what happens when FEMA foots the bill for a storm. Stay safe everyone.

It is amazing, its sunday and we are still here. This whole lipa thing is a political football. I got a feeling big changes will be made on this island.

Just got home, what an eye opening experience. I'm convinced political appointee's have no business running a utility. LIPA was 8.1 Billion in debt and that number just went way higher. I've never in my life seen a more neglected distribution system in my life. I truely feel sorry for the customers..... They treated us great and offered us everything. The people of Long Island pay the highest rates in the nation and get the crapiest service.
