Tell Us: Powerless in Glen Cove

Do you have power?

It's been 12 days since Hurricane Sandy hit, and Glen Cove has 1,201 customers still without power as of 1:35 p.m. Friday, according to the Long Island Power Authority. Glen Head has 566, Glenwood Landing has 353 and Upper Brookville has 162, with numbers in double-digits listed for Sea Cliff and Locust Valley

With temperatures below 50 degrees and dipping to near-freezing Friday night, and with specific information from LIPA somewhere between hard to come by and nonexistant, residents are at a loss as to when the ordeal will end.

Are you without power? Do you know an area that is? Tell us in the comments section, and share your thoughts and experiences.

I just got off the phone with someone from LIPA. After waiting an hour and 20 minutes, the woman on the phone told me to expect electricity, by the latest, November 13th. I live in Flower Hill, Manhasset. I asked the lady, "why does half of my block have electricity and i don't when we dont have any trees down or flooding?" and she responds by telling me 4 crazy and complicated reasons and after she rambled on about all these excuses they have I go to her and ask her HOW MANY TRUCKS DO YOU HAVE WORKING OUT HERE BECAUSE I HAVENT SEEN ANY for 12 DAYS!! She tells me 40 but wont tell him exactly where there are. I'm disgusting at this point and outraged at the fact that she tells me she had crew come around and take surveys about the damage but yet they just took their little notes and went about their day to another location. This is insane. Luckily the next 3 days wont be as cold because I'm not sure i can take sleeping in the cold anymore.

No power on Valley road. Day 13 on the generator. The piggies don't seem to mind.
