Vic Furman notes Governor Andrew Cuomo was completely absent from the scene when lights went out in Upstate New York. If it weren’t for roughnecks….
Monday Night, 7:00 PM: The rain blocked out any view from my window! The wind made my house vibrate and my power went out together with those of over 30,000 other people in Broome and Chenango Counties. I didn’t know it wouldn’t be until the following Friday morning I would get power back. I had no water, no phone, no radio or TV, no internet access. I flushed my toilet with pond water (lucky to have a pond).
Monday Night, 11:00 PM: I conceded to myself that this power outage would be an all-nighter and went to bed by candle light. It was just the beginning!
