No, they'd rather keep milking us to pay for the repairs and they also wouldn't have a reason to keep destroying street trees due to the poor placement of their poles.

Hope these LI'ers without power have a Verizon landline phone. Those Cablevision phones won't work when the power is out.

How can LIPA bury all the cable? Long Island is already developed. Maybe they can knock down 50% of the houses to get it done. Yeah, that's it, they can buy half the property to bury cables.
get with the program.

The LIPA system should have been buried underground decades ago. Now I dont see it being done anytime in our lifetimes. The costs would be in the billions,and our neighborhoods torn up for the next 15-20 years. So dont count on it ever happening.

Btw,yesterdays weather was basically a mini-hurricane. Imagine when a class 1 or beyond hits LI.

What a storm! Slept right through it. I know a guy who had a tree come down on his car and buried it from sight. Sea Cliff Village's fault that they didn't take down the dead tree after several requests. Guy has a possible lawsuit in front of him.
