I realize that there are many very serious issues around and this may sound a little selfish but someone has to ask the question - why does it seem Little Silver takes longer to get back up? Parts of Oceanport and Long Branch already have power. Last year there were LS neighborhoods out for 6 days for Irene, much longer than most.
