    Convoy of PSEG vans...heading north?

    I saw interesting sight today. I saw a huge convoy of 15 or so PSEG service vans heading north on Route 95 in Connecticut. There were other groups of their trucks heading north for a total of 30 or so. It was interesting because PSEG is a New Jersey utility and was wondering why so many of their trucks would be heading into New England like this. There is no storm activity here and besides they were not lineman trucks. Anybody know what's up? Did PSEG buy a poco up here?

    Probably scrambling just in case. With the current political climate against utilities better safe than sorry if the storm happens to turn.

    They were going to MA to help again with gas repairs stemming from a September accident.

    Should have guessed when I read it. For a moment I thought the gov knew something I did not.
    I'm in over my head...

    I'll have to revisit why Colombia's system was over pressurized now.

    Something about maintenance done incorrectly or such, I did not read closely.

    What I find particularly interesting is that apparently on the order of 6,000 customers have been without gas service ever since the incident, based on the need to retest the entire distribution system and all subscriber equipment for hidden damage before service could be restored.

    I wanna know how the NTSB has jurisdiction over gas pipelines. Transportation of gas in a pipeline is a lot different from air, sea, and road transportation.No vehicles involved.
