Third World Monmouth County

The sun is rising, the birds are chirping, and the sounds of generators fills the air as we start our fourth day without power in third world Monmouth County where 52,146 JCP&L customers still do not have power.  That’s electrical customer, not people.  Between residences and businesses that easily 400,000 people wearing dirty underwear and running out of the five day supplies that Governor Christie said to gather to prepare for the storm.

There is a shortage of water and ice.  Little to none is being trucked in, but sewage is being trucked out.cj-septic

The American Red Cross served 500 meals at Middletown North High School last night.  Middletown.  One of Money Magazine’s best places to live in America.  Money should survey the the age and locations of the electrical grids of the communities it surveys in future years.
