Has anyone seen tree trimming or LIPA trucks in the neighborhood behind Maureen's Kitchen? They still have not gotten to the tree that fell across the street and on the wires by my house! A few days ago our power went on for a few hours at night then was shut off again and no one has been to the area since! I thought we were close to getting it back but its been 4 days since then!
