Mon Power: Slowly Getting There
Mon Power Customers still without Power on Wednesday, 07.11.12 - 3:35 AM (12 Days after the storm):
I understand the severity of the wind damage and the heroic efforts to get peoples power restored.
What I don’t understand, is after the lines in our holler were repaired, when the juice was hooked up, it blew a pole/line breaker, and no one ever checked to see that power went to the end of the spur.
So now, for three days, the power company has been unable (unwilling?) to send one man in a pickup, for a five minute repair job.
The pole sits about six feet from the road with the blown breaker.

It saddens my heart on the comments about the electric companies. First of all most of the workers have been away from THEIR families for quite a while to HELP US. Let us not forget the extreme heat they were working in last week.I would just like to say a great big thanks to each and everyone of them for THEIR sacrifice and hard work.God Bless each one of you!!!!!!!!!!

Ellen god bless you for being one of the very few that looked at this power outage from the hard working power worker side!!! so many people stopped these men in there tracts to wine about how long it was taking to get there power back on when they should be stopping them to say thank you for working 16 hour days in the 100 degree heat or pouring rain all while wearing 60+ pounds of lineman gear and spending the 4th at a motel with out there family’s!! i to would like to say thank you to all the first energy workers who helped put gilmer county power lines back together and thank you to there family’s who had to give up there loved ones for 2 weeks god bless them!

From what I have read, the issue is not the hard working crew who did the actual work, it is the management of the power companies who failed the entire state. When you get workers from out of state to help they have to have guidance. Someone has to show them where every place is. That is why we continuously saw them along the highways trying to figure out where the places were. Lets make sure we understand the original comment. Also that is why the governor and psc is looking at the failure statewide. We all appreciate the hard working crew who got our electricity on. But not the electric companies.
