Screams of Joy as Power Restored
to Sandy's Hard Hit Victims

Christina Ng and Anthony Castellano, by ABC News

Screams of joy erupted through the canyons of lower Manhattan today when the lights came back on through a large section of the city, four days after Sandy's flood waters knocked out power to the city's financial district. The power surge will allow greater movement of the city's crippled subway system and was a major step in the recovery from the killer storm, whose death toll had topped 90, according to the Associated Press. When traffic lights came on, screams of joy could be heard in Soho,

I'm in NJ. No power. No power company trucks.

Have a electric line laying in my yard since early afternoon Monday. The power company won't even come over to tell me if it has power or not. No interest.

Something wrong with this picture.

That's very strange #2. Usually the FIRST thing power companies do is check out the downed lines.

I spent Tuesday through Friday about 70 pm "stuck" on the 10th Floor of an apartment building with no electricity, no heat and only intermittent cold water. Luckily, we have gas stoves and gas service was still working.

If I were younger, I might have ventured downstairs - but for what? Everything in the area was closed and dark.

No cell service, my landline is cordless so that was useless. I did have a transistor radio but the only station I could pick up was NPR ... and believe me, that was a listening experience.

And - I had books, magazines, canned food, and plenty of yarn to knit. It could have been worse. My sister on LI lost her house.

So happy to read this. Jeesh, if anyone wants to know what it's like to live in the Stone Age, go without electricity for a while.

I believe that Ms Lucianne and her .com staff reside in the NYC area; hope you are all well. You are in many of our thoughts and prayers.

Country Boy: Do you know that 3 utility companies were turned away in New Jersey and said they were not wanted because they were not union?
Guess they were welcomed in NY. Those people could care less if they were union or not. They wanted help.

Well, you see it's like this, the Alabama line crew was to take care of that. That's when it was realized that they weren't union, so blame it on those hicks from down south.

I'm with #1, I live in the so-called 3rd world. Mostly the Philippines, but Thailand and Indonesia sometimes as well. This kind of power problem happens all the time. Sometimes it's the weather, sometimes it's the politics. If Obama is anointed King again, New Yorkers, who overwhelmingly, and hysterically, worship him will reap what they sow. I'll solve my problems but I have no sympathy for those who cause their own and then whine about it.

I am thrilled that some of the people without power are getting it back. We lost power for 10 days during an ice storm, it was awful. The people of New York and New Jersey are fellow Americans, I would not wish hardship on any of them. There have been some minor problems with people who have offered to help, that always happens. A crew from New Orleans repaired my cable line after the ice storm and that had to be reworked. The basic lesson here is that in a crisis Americans help each other.

I rejoice with the New Yorkers over every small victory. It can't be easy living in a high-rise with no electric, or heat, or water, or sanitation. It's a different life that most people don't understand. I had the good fortune to live in Manhattan for 10 years, while I'm glad I'm not there for this, I wouldn't trade those experiences for anything. Good luck guys.

Newsflash -- NYC is not a monolithic, unitary organism, dedicated to uber-liberalism. Nor is its identity solely political.

It has all the ills -- and good -- of any large human enterprise. That one city has more [real] economic productivity than many of the world's countries. It has a huge and irreplaceable cultural component. Among about a zillion ["A zillion? That's a lot." ~~ "Mr. Escobar," in "Get Shorty"] other net positives.

I prefer to leave broad-brush smearing to Leftists, who not only eschew discernment, but actively seek to kill it in the cradle. [Now why did that image come to mind?]

BTW -- what came back on line? The solar panels? The windmills? Or the batter-- BOOM! -- ooops, no, not the batteries.

We have a friend on LI,no power and no assurances of getting it back anytime soon. Another friend in West Hartford,CT just got power back late yesterday....crews from Down South. She was thrilled. I hope all get power back before this next weather event, but I doubt it....so many people, so few IBEW workers to go around.

I wonder what NYC thinks about the less-than-Katrina-coverage by the "msm" to ONCE AGAIN protect their dear Leader-obama! It isn't NYC OR the Utilities or even N.J., that are the problem.. It's the Mayors and the Governors running them, along with the "preezy-of-the-united-steezy".. WHERE is the outrage for the victims of Sandy? WHERE is "Shep" smith? IMHO, they're not the right ethnic group and they're not shouting from rooftops.

While I am a considerable distance from NYC, and went relatively unscathed from the storm, I still wish my fellow NY'ers (they're Americans too) well and hope for a quick restoration of services. Hang tight LCOM staff!

I'm not a fan of insulting fellow Americans, just because of the state they live in. So for you "third-worlders", who find it neccessary to take time out of your day being sour and miserable to comment on our bad luck....scroom.

Having no power is tolerable for a few days. Having your house and all your memories go floating out to sea can make you inconsolable. The images of those beautiful homes crushed and broken apart is heartbreaking.

I recall all the downright unkind words by some on this forum after Katrina. As if anyone DESERVES to be put in misery or asked for it? As if we all lived on the Gov't dole and in some rundown project?

New York is a HUGE city, after all, and the misery was, and still is, great. I'm glad power was restored to a lot of places there so people can get back to work and the voting machines back in order, lest a vote or two for Romney might come forth. wink wink.

There's so much going on right now - the election, Benghazi - that we needed to stay abreast of and thanks to you, we did. Blessings to each and every one of you.

Yes, thanks, LCom staff, for keeping the site up during hardship. It's such a crucial time, but you know that, of course and that's why you do it. Thanks!

I lived in NYC. It's not just diverse in culture, it's diverse in thought. I live in Southern California now, and I can tell you, there is a difference. It's why Giuliani got elected to his full term allowance. Why Bloomberg has been elected against even more leftist candidates (yes, it's that bad -- he was the best running and ran at first as a Republican -- but even as stink as he's been, he's still better than his opponents were). People in NYC want to work and succeed just like most Americans.

I grew up in the New York metro area, Jersey side, and have the greatest respect and admiration for this great city. Seeing how this city bounced back after 911, Sandy is just a blip on the radar screen for them. New Yorkers operate at a much higher speed than the rest of the country. By Thanksgiving, Sandy will be an unpleasant memory and life will almost be back to normal for most, especially with the optimism our new President Elect Mitt Romney.

#1, then you can count me among the one-percent. New York is the greatest city on earth. It was my home once, and I have friends and acquaintances there still. Speaking of which...

#5, we've never met, but if memory serves we traded posts on this site once about our respective views of the Manhattan skyline (mine from high atop Midtown West). I've been hoping to hear you were okay, and I'm sorry now to hear about your sister's house.

Having been through hurricanes Alicia and Ike, I know what its like to listen to the winds and wonder how its all going to end and then emerge to realize that the hardships have only just begun. For friends and family who are in NYC and NY and other states affected, I wish you a speedy recovery. Know that you aren't alone and you join fellow Americans who have lived through this weather and come out stronger and better because of it.

Having said that, this is directed towards the self-serving nincompoops who voted for Obama, voted for Bloomberg, voted for people who raised taxes so high they forced people to leave the state, thereby losing two representatives, and are cr& p headed enough to vote for these people again AND follow every vaporous leftist policy with the Pavlovian fever of a dog in heat: we here in flyover country ain't surprised, and what goes around, comes around. And this message is especially for Chuckie Schumer: you want our sympathy for your state after what you did to Houston? THINK AGAIN. You know what what you can do with your need for sympathy in this matter. Suck it up and leave the rest of us alone. New Yawk AINT the center of America, especially where us Texans are concerned. You need US more than we need YOU.

IMHO, #1 was out of bounds. The residents of NYC and the surrounding area are suffering and don't deserve to be piled on, regardless of politics.

There are a couple of trucks of supplies coming down from the Burlington,VT area to Sandy victims. I, personally went to Dollar Tree yesterday and filled two carts with whatever I could find that would help but not spoil and food that could be eaten cold or easily cooked over a cook fire. I found cleaning supplies, personal hygene supplies and baby supplies. In all, I sent more than $100 worth of supplies to people I don't know and with whom I don't share the same political beliefs simply because I can't stand that my fellow Americans are suffering.

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO HELP???!!!

For those with cordless phones (or cell phones that need charged?). We don't live in a big city - just out in the sticks where more than 3 flakes of snow (or more likely, high wind or freezing rain) often seems to take down the power. I learned long ago to keep one cheap corded phone around which could be plugged in if needed and then later, simply used a small UPS (battery backup, for those not familiar with computerese) and plug a cordless phone and a cell charger into it. Even a smallish UPS will last for many hours and a medium or larger one for many days for such a small load as a phone or charger. They are not particularly large and can sometimes be found on sales at office supply stores. We also have a generator for the furnace and a few lights/outlets - but it is outside and I don't go out and wrestle with it unless I expect an extended outage. It is very helpful though, for the usual outage, to be able to call the power company or 911 if a serious emergency would arise during an outage.

I really am amazed that this site stayed up the entire time. Good job, L-com!

Once the power comes back on, it is easier to get things cleaned up. Those battery operated chain saws only work for so long. From experience, using a cross-cut saw is slow going.

In the fall of 2010, the nasty midterms drawing to a close, Michelle Obama was contemplating her next move. Two years into her tenure as first lady, the breathless fixation on guest lists and china selections was subsiding into routine, and she wanted a plan for the rest of her husband’s time in office. Of course, her calendar would never lack for National Hostess duties—the obligatory social functions outlined in binders left by Laura Bush’s team. She had already launched Let’s Move!, the childhood obesity initiative, and Joining Forces, a program to help military families and veterans, was also in

ALBANY — New York, whose status as the most populous state has long been ceded, will soon fall behind Florida into fourth place, a long-anticipated drop that is rife with symbolism and that could carry potentially serious economic consequences in coming years. When the Census Bureau releases its latest population estimates on Monday, demographers expect that Florida and New York will be narrowly separated — perhaps by as little as a few thousand people — and that if Florida does not pass New York this time, it almost certainly will do so in 2014. The census figures underscore immigration trends, as foreign-born migrants continue to

The two tabloid editors at the centre of the phone hacking trial had a secret six-year affair at the end of which Rebekah Brooks wrote to Andy Coulson: “I love you ... You are my very best friend ... I tell you everything,” the Old Bailey heard. It is alleged that Mrs Brooks and Mr Coulson oversaw phone hacking and corruption at two of the country’s biggest newspapers. Details of the clandestine relationship were made public during the second day of their trial, where they are accused of overseeing a decade of illegal activity at The Sun and The News

The Oscar-winning film director Charles Ferguson has cancelled his CNN documentary on Hillary Clinton after what he described as a private campaign against the film by prominent Democrats. Ferguson said he had decided to pull the plug after being met with a wall of silence from more than a hundred people who refused to be interviewed for the documentary. He claimed that aides to the former secretary of state put pressure on CNN behind the scenes, and made clear that Clinton would only co-operate "over my dead body". He also blamed a public campaign by Republicans, who claimed the film would be

When Ted Sarandos put out the word that Netflix would begin producing original shows, he was swamped with story pitches that everyone else in Hollywood clearly had taken a pass on — including some scripts marked with coffee stains, smudged fingerprints and other telltale signs of rejection. That all changed in 2011 after Netflix bought the political thriller "House of Cards" from "The Social Network" and "Fight Club" director David Fincher.

It’s a Duck Nation, and we’re all just living in it. Last week, A&E Network’s reality show “Duck Dynasty” catapulted to become the biggest unscripted show in cable history with its fourth season premiere. With nearly 11.8 million viewers, the show about a Louisiana family that has made millions from its duck call fabrication business is on the brink of toppling “The Walking Dead.” If it does, it will become cable´s biggest show. The A&E Network, as Duck Commander patriarch Phil Robertson would say, is “Happy, happy, happy.” The show premiered in March 2012 and finished its first cycle with an average

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.
