It us now day 11 of no power, freezing temps, no hot water & minimal light. It is frustrating that there are NO lipa trucks in the area, we live near St Peters, but I would have to say that i am very disappointed with Weber middle school for assigning an over abundance of homework as well as unit tests in multiple subjects this week! The kids have an hour of daylight in a 52 degree house to do homework & study & the library is not always a viable option for all.

LIPA has continued to remain silent on the prospect of when power will return to the Port Washington area. The only trucks I see working with any frequency are Optimum and Verizon. Just last night I heard a rumor (that's rumor not fact...yet) that implied that we would not have full power until Thanksgiving! If this is the case I suggest that all the homes effected collectively refuse to pay their LIPA bill fro at least 3 months. I would be glad to contact any news outlet (CNN, CNBC, NYT, etc) to get them on the side of the people effected. Mike Olson
