Anyone think that they will actually open schools tomorrow?
Jessica Lamoureux August 30, 2011 at 02:53 PM
Jill....I am praying! lol

They would have to bring power on line today and replenish the food in all of the schools. They should just make the decision and close until Tuesday - after the Labor Day Holiday.

Parts of Jarrettsville/Street are still without power. Come on BGE...going on day 3. There is a tree down on wires in the 1900 block of Jerrys rd that has gone untouched this entire time. I'm pretty disgusted.

The Bel Air Athletic Club has opened its doors to all local Harford County residents without power or water service. Please feel free to stop on by, take a shower, power up your electronic devices, cell phones etc and de-stress from a tough weekend.

Bull S$%&! I live less than a half mile from festival and the power definitely has not been restored. BGE's efforts in Harford County has been erratic at best, but more like pitiful. In general they have been outperformed by Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Virginia crews during this outage.
