Summit, NJ: Power Is On!! Hurricane Sandy Restoration in New Jersey on YouTube.

Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey hard, and you can see the devastation it caused by checking out this video here – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MuU6YRinfhI – This is my street.

There were millions of people without power on the East Coast and a lot of people were going stir crazy due to the fact that they had no power. I have noticed a large increase in homes with generators as well.

Once these super nice linemen from Michigan showed up on our street, we were all so happy! Sure, we wish it were sooner, but this isn’t the fault of the linesmen. I recorded the final moments of the restoration here.

These guys work very hard for days and weeks on end to get everyone back online. These guys were definitely the celebrities of the moment.
