I was wondering if the city lost power in the storm the other day. Anyone know?
Can't say for sure which parts, but every seashore community in Atlantic and Cape May Counties lost power to parts or entirely. Ocean City lost power to near 3/4 the island at one point, some areas were restored during the storm, and some were not. Wildwood was hit the hardest with power outages, with some areas out for several days.
From this you can assume that Sea Isle also lost power at some point during the storm, I could not tell you for sure where, or if it has been restored....

maybe Sea Isle got lucky this time around.....

SIC Fishin....
If you're not going to come down on a regular basis and get some use out of the place, especially during Jan & Feb, I'd lobby to shut the place down and leave it down til the first of April....(even then it can get pretty cold down here)...but usually by April what cold snaps we do get normally don't last long enough to cause any freeze ups...

I see it all too often in Ocean City where folks leave everything on in their summer homes, turn the heat all the way down to save a few bucks, then get hit with burst pipes, and thousands of dollars in water damage. It's one thing if you come down often, but if you don't it's just not worth the hassle and expense.....

Thanks everyone. Sounds as if SIC got spared too many outages.
We have always shut down from Thanksgiving to ST. Pattys day.

We just have owner that has been told by her realtor that if it could be used all year that they would sell it in a week. :nuts:(It's been on the market for 2 years.)

If you know anyone that wants a nice little 3 bedroom, 1 bath for around 300K ...... It is a 9 month/year unit

Tony Mig do you have any info on Somers Point. We drain down our house all the way but I would like to know how the area faired....Thanks
The area between Groveland Ave. and Laural Dr. west of Rt.#9 lost power for a few hours, the Somers Point Shopping Center lost parcial power through most of the storm. Not sure how the rest of the town faired.
If your drained, then you shouldn't have anything to worry about with the possible exception of telephone and cable. A lot of properties lost phone and cable lines due to the heavy wet snow combined with periods of sleet, and freezing rain that accumulated on wires pulling them down. Add to that the high sustained winds with gusts up to 50 mph. Verizon and Comcast are over whelmed with repairs, and probably won't come out until you file a report, so you might have that to deal with when you get back down here.
By late Tuesday all the power was restored, and the roads open through town.
