We have not experienced much in the way of flooding where I live.
We do not have a large number of trees or wires down.
Our streets are not in a rural area. We are in the center of suburbia.
Our utility services 22,194 customers in my town.
There are currently still
1134 customers without power in my town as of 5:55pm September 3rd.
All the streets adjacent to mine have had power since Tuesday
Our street has been completely out since 9:22pm August 28th for a total of six days.
And since the United Illuminating Company
does not see fit to have human beings answer their phones, or provide any information beyond "we're trying very hard" and "thank you for your patience" I was wondering if someone in that company might like to respond here
as to what's actually going on?
Because we haven't seen a utility truck on our street since Tuesday night when a little pickup with the UI logo drove slowly down and back up our street once
So how about it United Illuminating
? Got any concrete information you'd care to share beyond the hang-dog excuses and thank-yous you've been offering?
Because back in 1985 after hurricane Gloria, we had everything back to normal in 3 to 5 days. And that was despite the fact that the town looked like it experienced a cruise missile attack with the amount of trees and wires that were down.
