Angie's List Experts Podcast: Episode 002 - October 2013

“To be blunt, a lot of people weren’t prepared [for Hurricane Sandy] and were rushing around at the last minute. After three or four days of no power, people get irritated, and that’s where we run into problems.” – Bruce Angeloszek, CT Electrical Services
