The deadline has passed for power restoration and despite the claims that all but the barrier islands would be restored by Sunday night, many residents woke up to another day living like a frontiersman.
"We are still without power for day 15 and counting, according to JCP&L we should have had power almost a week ago," Ken Hoffman posted on Patch. "Can the state at least help us with tax breaks so we can install more permanent home generators? We have lost power for almost 40 days in the last 14 months really thinking about leaving the state. High taxes, horrible infrastructure, its becoming too much to bear."
Elizabeth Fucci said she called JCP&L every day and was told she would have power that night, and it has yet to happen.
"They don't have a clue. Last year Oct. 2011, JCP&L told us we were the last home to get power (10 days) and by the looks of things, we will have that honor again," Fucci posted on Patch.
Lamerson Road resident Viki Andersen said everytime she called to report her outage it was "news to the call center."
"They projected our street back on Saturday, but 6:30 Monday a.m. we all remain in the dark,"Andersen said. "The trees that fell on our lines haven't even been cleared yet- no trucks have been here. Beyond frustrating as our mayor correctly summed it up."
And speaking of the Mayor, Bill Cogger has been eating cold dinners by fireside in his home since the storm and feeding the small generator he bought at Shop Rite in Chester a week after the storm to run his furnace and well pump.
"I now have an interesting cologne," Cogger said of the gasoline fumes.
