As the storm passed over our house, neighborhood and state a path of destruction was left behind it. I have seen a lot of electrical poles snapped like twigs, trees uprooted, debris all over the place.
After too days bunkered in without main power and after the state of emergency was lifted, my wife and I decided to take a bike ride around the area to see the damage and secondly to check out our new electrical jackets (they are amazing)
Around the corner there was a huge tree fell thru the electrical wires on to the house. It cut thru the roof and was rested between the floors.
Wires and trees were laying all over the ground. On route 130 was the largest damage around my place, almost a quarter mile of high voltage poles were snapped, with a spider web of wire around. The detour was on for miles and I almost went where the traffic allowed not on the direction intended.
We got on an overpass looking over the New Jersey Turnpike. And there was my hair rising experience.
There was mile after mile of tree cutting trucks, cranes , electrical equipment , power utility trucks pouring in. They were from all over the country. I guess that’s the feeling in the war after being overtaken and your cavalry arrives. I saw hundreds of people and machinery pouring in in front of me. That experience was worth the ride. I like to thank those who have been participating in this restoration effort.
And while I’m not there to shake your hand Crownfire, your help is appreciated. Thank you.

You are most welcome. I hope your home and family came through okay. We are almost done here in West Virginia and there is talk about us going to New Jersey. Not sure as there is already teams in place there, but you never know. If we do I will let you know.

Never ceases to amaze me with the power of nature. Humbling.
