If you’re in Verona you’ve probably figured this out already, but Governor Chris Christie went on several radio stations this morning and said the damage done by Saturday’s snowstorm is worse than that caused in New Jersey by Hurricane Irene:

“Folks across New Jersey need to understand that when you compare the storm with the most recent experience of Hurricane Irene this from a utility’s perspective is a more difficult problem because of the number of trees that are damaged,” Christie told 1010 WINS.

The bright side, if you need one, is that about half of the 700,000 homes in New Jersey that were without power on Saturday evening had powered restored by Monday morning. PSEG issued a statement this morning to say that it expects 95% of its customers will have power back by midnight Wednesday.

The Verona Fire Department extinguishes a blaze caused by a downed power line.
