When foreman Brian Adams of Redding first arrived in New Jersey a little less than two weeks ago, he says he was unprepared for what he saw:
Adams "I mean, there's houses torn off of foundations. There's partial collapse. Some are sitting on their sides. It was really amazing."
Adams is part of a Western Area Power Administration group of about 80 workers who have been helping to restore power in New Jersey. He says they've been putting in 16 to 17 hour days - even through the Nor'Easter that hit after Sandy:
Adams "We were working in condtions of 50 MPH winds and we wedre getting an inch of snow an hour blowing sideways and it's tough. You know, ti's cold, the hours they're working; it starts to wear on a person."
