Same area as last week too, my friend told me. With all the PSEG towers in this town, I have a hard time understanding such problems!

Its the trees and ice on the power lines, people that live in the woods will always get a loss of power....Thats an act of God and I am not defending PSE&G....

1/2" inch of ice = about 500 lbs on a power line. That same ice makes a tree branch weigh about 30x more then it normally does. Ice mixed with the earlier heavy wet snow just brings down branches and trees with ease. PSEGs problem is not the high tension lines in town - they are under a literal ton of stress given the weight of the cable - and they can handle up to 1" of ice.. its the smaller lower power lines you see in front of your house. If service gets broken from a fallen tree or branch, and its the "outlet" of a substation - it will take out a whole neighborhood. That mixed with the small local trees taking out power block by block... It happens.
