I bet he was shocked to see such a reaction.

It's good to be a utility worker.

a positive end to an otherwise charged story.

I spent a couple days calling people to ascertain if their power had returned. Out of about 300 calls, only one person was a complete dickbag to me (and his power was back on!). By and large, people were appreciative and understanding.

I might just do the same if/when I get power back.

/lives on Long Island
//not scheduled to get power again until this weekend if not later
///very glad he has a fireplace and a lot of firewood gathered.

I've at least been able to stay with people who have power, but I can imagine having a reaction like that at this point.

The Emera and Nova Scotia Power crews are there at the request of local utilities, who will cover the cost of emergency repairs.

Yet I still feel Emera will somehow use this to justify the next big rate hike.

From TFA:

The crew returned to the area the next day and restored service to a nearby elementary school, he said.

Yeah, those stupid kids. Why don't they have impeccable art skills? Losers.

We had crews from Montana & Manitoba working to restore our power. I too, was very happy to see them, just not jump in their arms happy. Although a couple of more days in the dark & I probably couldn't promise anything....

As a Canadian, I just want to point out that despite some of the Great Canadian past-times being 'snark' and 'why we really aren't Americans', the simple truth is this:

You are our family on this continent.

When disaster strikes on either side of the border we send help to each other. It is just the way family works.

Right, they don't do anything for free...or even cheap. 5 days without power after Juan in '03 was nothing compared to New Jersey and NY

Working out of the country on another companies dime? By my math and using Emera logic, that should be a 8-10% rate hike.

The sentiment is nice, I guess. But I wouldn't want these guys who specialize in 220v European power working on our American 110v power grid. Seems like a recipe for disaster.

Nice try, but no. Next you'll want me to believe I don't need to pack one of these when I visit "the provinces":

I was in Starbucks this morning when one of the work crews came in, boys from Massachusettes and New Hampshire. They were telling me we have crews from as far as Cali and Nova Scotia and I was partially in disbelief that they'd come that far, but yeah, with the caliber of damage around here, I believe it. (I live two blocks north of one of the worst hit areas on Long Island, entire houses washed the fark away, peoples' entire lives gone overnight. It's horrifying.)

/if any local farkers want to have a Fark Hurricane Cleanup Help Party, EIP. Lotta people need help with demolition and nothing goes better than beer and demo.
//except scrumpy and Demo.

Ok, did this not bother anyone else?

A) Title of story hints at how workers were welcomed.

B) First line of the story says "A Long Island, N.Y., woman was so happy to see power crews from Nova Scotia on her street Saturday that she jumped into the arms of one startled worker." Later on it says "Bill Milligan sent the photos to The Chronicle Herald in an email..."

C) Nowhere in the story is the picture that the story title hints at, and was sent to the paper that published the story.

W.T.F.?

There's a reason why most flags are just stripes, or variants thereof. I've lived in Canada for decades, and I still can't draw the f*cking flag.

It's great how everyone is pulling together. Pacific Gas and Electric loaded a bunch of guys *and* their rigs onto a cargo plane and sent them out there. Just keep them away from your gas lines and you'll be OK.

He was wearing a bra during work? Was it his wife's?

Was he wearing her "Hello Kitty" underwear too?

Enquiring minds would like to know?
