is there garbage pick-up on Monday??
9:34 pm on Sunday, October 28, 2012
Steve, I'm assuming this is for Monday: I received a text message from Cedar Grove about 5:50 p.m. that says, "Due to the severe weather there will be no garbage or recycling collection. www.nixle.us/83MHH"
11:20 pm on Sunday, October 28, 2012
You are worried about your garbage???
11:23 pm on Sunday, October 28, 2012
It is important to worry about the garbage. If people leave it out with the false impression it will somehow be picked up, that garbage will likely be washed into (and clog) storm drains. That will make flooding even worse. Short version - please everyone, secure your trash and do not put it out.
7:26 am on Monday, October 29, 2012
I logged on to township site -- Mahwah -- looking for notice about recycling. It would have been helpful to know for sure what servies are suspended today, Monday and tomorrow. Good point about garbage -- which holds for recycling as well.
8:57 am on Monday, October 29, 2012
Hi Cynthia. Garbage in Mahwah is expected to be on schedule today.

Romeny terms disaster relief immoral called for dissolution of FEMA on campaign trail 2012
8:26 am on Monday, October 29, 2012
Disgusting isn't it? Misfortune doesn't fit into the thinking of people who have had good fortune and want so badly, for reasons of self esteem, to think that they built everything they have themselves.
Mitt Romney would regard disaster victims as lazy seekers of handouts who need to take responsibility for themselves.

Thank you Sally! Good to know.
11:51 am on Monday, October 29, 2012
Not quite Sally. I am a response to paid bloggers.

Power outages in jefferson twp. Berkshire valley rt 15 area
11:44 am on Monday, October 29, 2012
Kudos to the Patch and it's parent company AOL/Huffingtonpost. Your effective communications and journalism provides great local coverage. I hope your readership continues to grow.
3:59 pm on Monday, October 29, 2012
Thanks Gary, we have about 90 people across the state working as hard as we can. The kudos is appreciated.
12:01 pm on Monday, October 29, 2012
a helpful link to watch the impact of the storm across the area. Hope to just watch and not experience the worst of the storm. Take Care.
12:06 pm on Monday, October 29, 2012
Ooooohhhhh. The lights flickered two hours ago and the cable was out for awhile. We're all DOOMED!! But thanks, Patch, for being there. It may get worse.
3:53 pm on Monday, October 29, 2012
It is nice to have a place to be informed immediately about the storm. I am out of state in FL and am anxious to know what is happening in my home town and state.
Thank you all for sharing your experiences about the weather. I have been trying to access the state cams to see the storm in real time but most of them are not projecting or I am not looking on the correct sites! Having gone through many storms, I wish you all well. Stay safe.
4:37 pm on Monday, October 29, 2012
Why is there no place in Montville to store medication that needs to be keep cold?
4:43 pm on Monday, October 29, 2012
Just got word that Mahwah schools are closed on Tuesday.
4:59 pm on Monday, October 29, 2012
Power out in some apartments on Roseland Ave
5:15 pm on Monday, October 29, 2012
I suggest that we all stay on the storm and put politics on hold for another day. No Tuesday garbage or recycling set for Mahwah. We had trash pick-up yesterday, but using my usual garbage plan, kept barrels inside and filled lawn & leaf bags heavily, so empties don't end up hundreds of feet downwind. Was just breezy, but who knew?
5:24 pm on Monday, October 29, 2012
My power went off around 3:45 on Fawnridge Anyone else?
5:31 pm on Monday, October 29, 2012
At 2:10, Moffatt had maybe a one-second loss, but was back on line long before our new required TV box rebooted. I hope the 707 homes get their power back soon, as Rockland earns enough, just like Cablevision, from us.
anything on bloomfield?
6:14 pm on Monday, October 29, 2012
power our for a sec
6:32 pm on Monday, October 29, 2012
Does anyone know what happened on Vinton Ave in Madison? There was a loud boom and now there is a firetruck on the scene.
8:14 pm on Monday, October 29, 2012
Hearing on the Madison Facebook page a transformer blew there. http://www.facebook.com/madisonpatch
7:07 pm on Monday, October 29, 2012
hey heather , why dont you post that question on the madison patch?
7:13 pm on Monday, October 29, 2012
Just so everyone knows, this story is posted across dozens of sites. If you have a specific question, make sure to cite the town you're referring to.
8:28 pm on Monday, October 29, 2012
Lost power here in Randolph around 8 pm. Wonder how long we will be without power this time.
9:00 pm on Monday, October 29, 2012
Hopatcong says let's make the best of it no live lost. Pray God. At the end let's every local town have the mother of bbq's instead of losing all that food and we can talk and give each other help and support. Isn't that what Americans do?
2:15 am on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Thank you everyone working for Patch for keeping us all updated. Is there any word on when power is expected to be back in Millburn?
2:23 am on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
You're welcome Tom. It's so hard to say because there are so many people out, and its not like just a substation is out. It's wires and poles down, which is much harder to estimate.
5:16 am on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Alexander avenue lost power yesterday at about 7 pm. Looks like some trees fell overnight but I can't tell yet. Does anybody know when we can expect power to be back
9:13 am on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
No power in green brook
10:19 am on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Anytruth to the rumor parsippany will be turning off the water pumps due to lack of fuel to run them? Meaning we will lose power? If so do we know when this would happen?
10:20 am on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Sorry. Not power. Water
10:46 am on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
I am wondering about the safety of water in Hopatcong. Anybody know if tap water is still safe to drink? I'm pretty sure it is but... Thanks!!
11:19 am on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
I just got a text from PSE&G advising that we can expect the power in Caldwell to be out for 7 - 10 days! Ugh!!!!
12:10 pm on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Anyone know about Cedar Grove- Ridge Road by Reservoir? I'm hoping Waterview Center is okay! The phone is just ringing, and I'm far away.
thanks - LP
12:18 pm on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
I just read the tweet that they are evacuating Waterview Center. Does anyone know where to? Yikes. I'm in Queens, NY, and my mom is a patient there.
12:26 pm on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
I am sorry pls discard my last comment... My friend is staying at - Residence Inn Parsippany,Gatehall Drive Parsippany, New Jersey 07054 USA.For last fifteen hours we have lost contact with her. She is neither online nor I am able to get in touch through phone. Does anyone know if there is a power outage at the hotel. Slightly worried about her safety.
12:48 pm on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Rohit, most of New Jersey is out of power. So, I think the Residence Inn in Parsipanny must be experiencing the same. Right now, there is no way to contact family members if the mobile phone battery dies out. I understand your concern as I am in the same boat.
2:52 pm on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Things are a mess , and power might be out for a few days ,
but just count your blessings if your home did not have to deal with Storm Surge Damage , ( the coverage reminded me of the waves we saw roll over Japan) , and say a prayer for those 80+ families that lost their homes due to the inferno in the Rockaway Peninsula of Queens ,
3:35 pm on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Over 1200 apartments horizon house fort lee without power since early yesterday evening. Can't get update as to when power will be restored.
They make a bad situation worse by failing to communicate.
10:39 pm on Wednesday, October 31, 2012
heard power to buildings 3,4 & 6 have been restored. Hope the rest come tomorrow
4:20 pm on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Anyone know about Warren schools?
6:30 pm on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Any real estimates for when Power will be restored. PSE&G says everyone will have power by Nov. 5 but that just sounds like a goal not reality.
6:41 pm on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
does anyone have any information if power is restored at Brettonwood (off of Century road). Appreciate any help.
7:29 pm on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
What about lakeview subacute center? My mom was relocated there from atlantic city on sunday. I can't get a telephone call through. The lines must be down?
Anyone know when the power will be Back for belleville nj?
7:51 pm on Tuesday, October 30, 2012
How many of you folks asking about power restoration timelines live under a rock??? Since LAST Thursday, the utilities made it CLEAR that if the storm causes widespread you will be WITHOUT power for AT LEAST 7-10 days and should be prepared for that. Quit your whining and come back in 7-10 days. PS, dont run out for milk and bread, that is long gone too!!
1:43 am on Sunday, November 4, 2012
Congratulations, Oldtimer, you are the one millionth lecturer to post "Quit your whining"! While there is no reward, we are now awarding ribbons for those who command others to "Quit saying quit your whining". Please enter in the next 7-10 days!
3:34 am on Wednesday, October 31, 2012
Anyone know where you can get gas in Chester , long valley, mt olive?
4:27 am on Wednesday, October 31, 2012
>> PSE&G says everyone will have power by Nov. 5 but that just sounds like a goal not reality<<< They always put forth a date further away than they expect, that way you don't make repeated calls into their center if they had promised you a much earlier date that they couldn't meet.
11:07 am on Wednesday, October 31, 2012
Does anyone know if there's power on mt kemble road in morristown?
1:55 pm on Wednesday, October 31, 2012

9:17 pm on Wednesday, October 31, 2012
Tweets have gone out to say that a substation in Newark has been put back on line.
9:58 pm on Wednesday, October 31, 2012
Any news on power being restored to Hoboken? Thanks
10:43 pm on Wednesday, October 31, 2012
Horizon House update. Power restored to buildings 3, 4 & 6. Better than the week prognosis most gave on Tuesday. Hoping power is restored to the rest sometime tomorrow.
10:50 pm on Wednesday, October 31, 2012
Has any one seen the promised 'out of state' crews and tree trimmers? If they were here as promised, I wouldn't have to be posting this via generator power.
2:59 pm on Thursday, November 1, 2012
Does anyone have any tip which gas stations around Cranford, Westfield, Roselle Park,Linden still supply gas?
10:02 am on Friday, November 2, 2012
Does anybody know about working ATMs in Hoboken?
9:25 pm on Saturday, November 3, 2012
Well I gues Obama showed up in New Jersey..had his photo op and went on with his schedule. What a waist!
1:39 am on Sunday, November 4, 2012
If the president had come to your house, turned on the power with his Magic President Wand, given you a back massage, cooked you and 23 family members a lasagna dinner, washed, dried and put away every last plate, let's face it, you'd be complaining that he didn't make the garlic bread the way you like it. Got it, Brad, you hate the man.
9:26 pm on Saturday, November 3, 2012
ooops! a big WASTE
11:45 pm on Saturday, November 3, 2012
