    I took the day off today. I have paid time off that I have to use before the end of the year, but I am planning on working tomorrow if I don't lose power.

    For those who don't already know.... I work for the 3rd largest Gas/Electric Utility company in the USA and we're based in Central New England.
    Thank you.

    Good luck.

    Stay safe, I know power workers and how dangerous your job can be.

    Thank You...so far its not...but they always overstate to make people Pay Attention...Atlantic City is a barrier island and there are several all connected with ALOT of people living on them...and they are all at great risk for a hurricane.

    Where Will Sandy Rank Among These Worst U.S. Storms Of All Time?

    Sandy, on October 28. (Credit: Wikipedia)

    With tropical storm force winds 1,000 miles across, Sandy is a giant, with some saying this might be the biggest storm ever to hit the eastern seaboard and one of the biggest ever to land on the U.S. Really?

    Damages are going to be Large, possibly record, and Financial markets, closed today, will again be closed tomorrow.

    It's difficult to fathom just how widespread damages/displacement to property and personal lives Could be.

    A relative called from near Chicago. There are warnings out about lake Erie and Lake Michigan because of Sandy.

    I don't think a lot of people will die, so in that sense no not that catastrophic, but in terms of damage they may be right. We have a lot of old trees, and our power id delivered mostly by 100 year old systems and equally archaic services in the NE. Unlike the south where you re-build everything every few years with the latest technologies. Our trees are older and almost all of us have basements where flooding will be a major cause for concern.

    Damage-wise I think they are spot on. Millions could be without power for weeks, and the overall misery index could approach that of the mid-west tornado ally, and southern hurricane centers.

    I'm an inside worker, making maps for damage assessors and line crews. Not a glorious job but a necessary one.

    Thanks for the thought.
