LIPA and National Grid both need to have heads role. And, enough w/ Cuomo and his political posturing.Get your butt out from behind that desk with your complaining and get out in the streets like Christie's been doing....

Hats off to the crews actually doing the work. LIPA management is another story. Obviously there aren't enough poles and the communication is terrible. We got electric back late Wednesday. I feel for those still suffering on the south shore and elsewhere. My son still can't get home to Long Beach.

Belle Terre is 95% complete. Interesting. While I'm happy for them, isn't that where Sen. LaValle lives? The article subtitle reads, "Most of the work done was seen in Three Village and Belle Terre on Thursday while the bulk of Port Jefferson continues to wait." When will the 9 crews in Belle Terre be deployed to help the "bulk of Port Jefferson"?

We need to know what the LIPA/National Grid work plan is. How do they go about identifying the work to be done and prioritizing/sequencing the jobs to restore service efficiently? LILCO began the restoration process by having two man teams survey each circuit as soon as the storm ended. Every one of the hundred plus substations functioned as work centers dispatching work crews to the damage sites identified by the survey teams The Substation area work manager managed the crews assigned to him to restore service to his circuits. Work crews were sent to the substation area managers based on the damage (jobs) he found and reported to headquarters How is restoration organized and accomplished now?

The corpse is apparently well http://www.coachoutletonlinegg.com preserved: a young woman, lying face down, http://www.coachoutletonlineaol.net shielding her face with her hands at the moment http://www.coachfactoryoutletwy.com of death. Her dress has risen up http://www.coachoutletstorefc.com and is tangled around her waist, her bare http://www.coachoutletaol.org legs exposed beneath.She is currently on display at http://www.coachfactoryoutetmp.com the J Paul Getty Museum in Malibu, as the first http://www.coachoutletns.com exhibit in a show that explores the ways that http://www.coachoutletstoreonlineys.net modern artists - from Francesco Piranesi http://www.coachfactoryonlineest.net to Anthony Gormley - have responded http://www.coachfactoryoutletpst.com to history's most famous volcanic eruption.
