THE EDITOR, Sir:
I think we are being a little unreasonable as it relates to the Jamaica Public Service's (JPS) handling of matters since the passage of Hurricane Sandy. The fact is that the power company could not just switch the lights back on magically the second the hurricane passed.
Lines are down and other equipment, undoubtedly, were damaged. These have to be assessed and fixed before the grid can be switched back on. This requires lots of time and effort on the part of the workers. We have, over the years, had many reasons to criticise the JPS.
Let us be fair this time around and show some patience. Losing electricity is not the end of the world.
I am, etc,
