After the Storm.
The power came back on at about 3:30 AM, which was good since the house was getting cold. I had moved out to the RV since it has a propane heater. Unfortunately, the power went out again at 10 AM. Once it was light out, I went out to survey the damage. Several more trees down, including my favorite Japanese Maple in the front yard. The remaining Birch trees were bent almost to the ground. Images to follow. The night before Halloween is known as “Mischief Night” in this region. Hope folks are not running around tonight with downed power lines. Right now PSE&G is saying power should be restored by midnight Halloween, or for some of the worst hit parts of the state on Wednesday. If it is going to be much longer, I will need to drain the water in the pipes before they freeze.
