School Board Member Robin Kulwin, who lives on Duryea in Upper Montclair, was still without power late Wednesday. So was the Flaherty family which resides on The Fairway.
Another resident without power, Elizabeth Lynch, said her experience with the recent snowstorm had been a real test of patience and of faith in PSE&G's ability to get an outage report straight.
"I've lived here since 1999 and never experienced such a confused, sloppy response from the utility; the microburst [of 2006] was a picnic compared to this," said Lynch, emailing Patch from the Montclair Public Library.
Indeed many streets still looked like a war zone late Wednesday, with downed power lines and yellow tape preventing cars from passing through.
More than 89,000 New Jersey residents were still without power on Thursday morning, with schools in towns like Teaneck still not open.
And there were still countless residents without power in Montclair on Thursday morning as well, meaning many were turning to warming centers or to places such as Panera at 15 Bloomfield Avenue or a Starbucks location or the Montclair Public Library at 50 South Fullerton Avenue for Internet access. In addition, here are warming centers you can utilize:
—The YMCA at 25 Park Street is offering heat and hot water to anyone, whether they are a member or not.
—Residents without electricity may come to the municipal building's Council Chambers from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The chambers located at 205 Claremont Avenue has electrical outlets and Wi-Fi you may use.
—Residents may also visit the Salvation Army located at 13 Trinity Place. The Salvation Army has showering facilities, a coffee shop, and a comfortable lobby area. The site will be open until 9 p.m.
Both the chambers and the Salvation Army will be open and available until Thursday evening. If the need continues, they may remain open for a longer period. For further information, call the Montclair Health Department at 973-509-4974 or the Salvation Army at 973-744-3312.
The good news is that Thursday's temperatures are expected to come close to 60 degrees, with plenty of sunshine.
Indeed, a gorgeous weekend is in store as well, just in time for the New York Marathon on Sunday.
