Once again, I ask you to circulate this communication by whatever means you have available.ConEd has contacted Dr. Anne Keating to say that our grid should have power by 11:30pm Saturday. There are, of course, no guarantees, but I cannot imagine that ConEd would set itself up for a PR nightmare by making this announcement without a high level of confidence.Since EDT ends during the night between Saturday and Sunday and we "fall back," we will have an additional hour to soak up the heat, shower ourselves silly, call everyone in our address books, read a week of email, and surf the web until we blow out our motherboards.
Let's keep our fingers crossed!
