Autumn Weather in New Jersey: Hurricane, Nor’easter, and Snow
One week after Hurricane Sandy, we were hit with Nor’easter Athena. I didn’t know that nor’easters were given names. During the night we got 8-12 inches of snow. The power went out again.
At the time, PSE&G sent an e-mail out that stated 70K users were still out due to hurricane Sandy, and another 90K users were out due to the nor’easter last night. The other comment was “Despite the snowstorm, the 4,000 out-of-state workers and 700 PSE&G linemen restored service to more than 120,000 customers affected by Hurricane Sandy in the past 24 hours. Many of our crews from the south have never worked in snow before, but have proven more than capable of handling this new challenge.”
