Let there be light! Residents in various neighborhoods of Ridgewood tell Patch they've seen PSE&G trucks in the area. And the power is coming back on.
Several people living in Ridgewood's Lawns neighborhood near Somerville School told Patch they got the juice Wednesday. People living near Valley Hospital also were restored, multiple people told Patch.
The south section of West Glen Avenue also received power on Wednesday. The downtown, fortunately, never lost power. Neither did some sections of Orchard, Ridge and around S. Maple/Prospect.
Mayor Paul Aronsohn said he did not know specifics on what would be back up and when, but said PSE&G is here.
"We've been in communication with them," Aronsohn said Thursday. "They do it on a triage basis...Basically they try to get the biggest bang with the circuits up. So someone could see their neighbor's house go up and not theirs. It's because they're on a different circuit.
"They're getting more trucks in that should be arriving soon," he said. "The fact we see PSE&G trucks at all is a good sign. Other towns are not seeing that."
Glen Rock is among those towns. Most are planning on not seeing the lights return until at least the weekend.
