We got power back in my neighborhood at about 11:00 last night.

Until then, the entire block met at one neighbor's yard, and we ordered pizza, and drank beer and wine, and listened to the radio, and kept an eye on each other and our property.

It was actually kinda fun.

The funniest part, we were in the middle of a religious debate, and one of my neighbors said,

"You've got to have faith. Bad stuff happens to everyone, just keep faith that things will get better."

and as soon as he said that, the power came back. LOL!!!

hey peeps hope everyone is OK & have their power back on......... ours came back on at 2:00am........ last xmas we spent a certain amount in KBToys & got a battery powered black & white tv for free..... at the time I laughed, but it obviously came in handy!!!!!
I had the day off thank god..... it was a time for the whole family to hang together....... I was telling my kids...... see the things you should be thankful for...... some people in the world have no electricity, no lights, no tv, no radio, no nintendo, no cable, no vcrs, no dvds, and some people in other parts of the world don't even know what any of that is...... so be thankful for what you have........

Sietz

Well, power went out here on long island at the same time everyone elses did. I was at a site and the homeowner said she had no electricty so i checked her box (Heh, i mean FUSE BOX!) and it was fine but still nothing. My guys are always cutting live wires in the place so it was nothing new. I soon left after that, not knowing the current situation. I went home and my AC was off. I checked the fuses again. nothing went on. I thought dam LIPA shut or power off!!

I finally went to a neighbor and she filled me in on what happened. My bro came home and we fired up the old generator so we would have some electricty. we got the power on at 5am. some parts of long island got thier power back as early as 8pm!!

Diane couldnt make it home so she stayed in a hotel in NYC. She took a bus home and she is here now, safe and sound!

shit i was able to get on CF last nite cause it was too slow. maybe cause of the outage. One thing I will say is that I was a determined biatch to get home. I couldn't get thru to no one unless they had a regular phone. everyone that had a cordless or cell phone was assed out. Naya did you get thru to Angie last nite or today? Lucky you were there. Hey they named the storm after my daughter ERica. lol

Hey everyone... HOPE EVERYONE IS OK!!!

I still have NO POWER!!!

I live in Bayonne and parts of Bayonne got their power back last night.

What a horrible night's rest last night.

I was kind of fun though... me and the kids hung out on the porch until it was "bed" time.

hi everyone. especially my fellow bayonne gals, 4everfreestyle & dreamgirl. i lost complete power as you 2 know. my sister also lost it. she lives in union nj. i called my parents in rahway. they came to get me. my sister's hubby works for the NY stock exchange. he was able to take a ferry to his mom's condo on staten island but had to walk 17 miles. OYE!! we are not sure how he'll get home today since he went back to work. i am home now. my apartment has power except where i plug in my computer. the outlet was from 1940. so i bought an extension cord and am using another outlet. o yeah got the POWER!!

hope u NYc peeps get back online soon.

For some reason that tune from a few years back just popped into my head. "I've got the power".

OHHHHHHHHHHHH MYYYYYYYYYY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD! I thought I was going to f*cken die in this HEAT! WTF? WHY did all these states lose outage at the same time? We just got power at 6pm today and I went out on my terrace, yelling and screaming like a f*cken LOCA cheering like a wild woman! DAMN I'm spoiled with my Air Conditioner! But my husband is worse than me! I couldn't stand the ice bags in the Beach cooler and thousands of water bottles, tuna fish, bread, sodas, the DARK, the candles, the radio repeating the news, NO COMPUTER and these damn mosquitos that got into my apartment! What a horrible experience! :crap I hope it stays on now!

I WAS HAPPY TO GET THAT OFF MY CHEST! :blah
