I live on the jersey shore and took a beating from Hurricane Sandy. Was 12 days without power and for good measure, a snow storm was thrown in. My wife hit the wall with the cold house. While I have a fireplace and burned a cord of wood, no heat. lights, place to cook beyond the outside grill was taking its toll on wife/kids and even me. Last friday night a neighbor found some Alabama Power crew and asked for help. They came within an hour, replaced a transformer on my telephone pole, and I had power. For good measure they also gave my kids Holloween Candy as that had been cancelled. They could not have been nicer and if there are any duck hunters who want to hunt while they are still in jersey feel free to PM me. I have extra shotguns and while I dont promise birds we can give it a try. The jersey shore marshes were so battered its going to be a new learning season of figuring out what is left, what roads still exist and if birds still go where they used to go. Roll Tide.
