I want to start by saying that Hurricane Sandy was a difficult time for everyone. Also, United Illuminating Co., with the help of many other states and even Canadian workers, did a great job of getting our power back relatively quickly.
The service crew on our street was from Nova Scotia! However, it seems that there must be a more efficient way to handle a situation like this in the future. While the Canadian linesmen were doing the actual work two UI men sat in a heated truck and drank coffee.
