2020 Thunderstorm Thread
Crap. "The end of the known world". "Humanz bite"! "I'm safe behind the washer..."
The big boomer is definitely a humanz thing. What exactly do they NOT understand???
Does anyone else feel like the weather people seriously don’t know what they’re doing?
They went from 30% chance of rain, then 80% chance of rain then back down to 10% chance all with a matter of hours.
It’s like they guess and then quickly change it when they know they are wrong.
When I was younger, if they said it was gonna rain, it rained!
Hard to trust and plan anything.
This one seems to be consistently pretty accurate: https://www.wunderground.com/hourly/us/nj/hackettstown
At 5:39 I got a severe thunderstorm watch until 11pm alert
At 6:47 I got a severe thunderstorm warning until 8pm alert from Hopatcong, 3 minutes before I got another one from Hackettstown.
Still down on Ridge. Extra crews have arrived per JCPL. Tree damage is what's indicated. I guess wires must be down also. Estimated restoration tonight at 8:30p.m. All I can say is I hope so. As always "time will tell." Electricity went down at about 7:00p.m. Sunday night.
250 still out in Warren, etr to be done with most is 2pm tomorrow so good to be today. Yours is a bigger one, higher priority.
Sorry to hear that, Mrs. Pipes. Hopefully you will have electric very soon...and also heat as it is going to be a cold night. If you need us for anything (or even a warm bed) please let me know...
Down to 200 out for WC. 50% tween Hope, Lopatcong, and Hardwick; rest of townships mostly 5-10 out. we look pretty good except if you are still out up here, most by 11pm; the last by 2-3 pm tomorrow so I am so sorry if you are one of these last ones.
Down to 160 at 7 o’clock. That’s probably the end of the day, bought from 450 to 160 in a day is is pretty good progress. So sorry for the folks still out hand I figure a few more will come up before midnight. Did Ridge Road come back yet?
Yes, it did come back about 1/2 hour or so ago. About 2 hours prior to coming back JCP&L called and left a message saying, "we think we solved your electricity problem." They left a number to call IF it had not come back. It hadn't. But, about 2 hours later it Did come back. We are thankful. Thank you for asking.
Only 9 out as of 9 am so should be over soon. 7 locations around the county.
