A crew from Mississippi came in and fixed our transformer. That took all of 30 minutes. A crew is now cutting the tree that caused all the mayhem. I have been in touch with AOW and am now trying to figure out how to revive the turtle who went into hibernation. Somehow he knew to come out must have smelled the poached salmon.
Oddly buying big lots at Costco probably allowed me to ride out in ease. I had 72 rolls of toilet paper. enough canned goods for a year or more. I never lost water or gas but the house was 61 degrees. I will do a laundry later. You still can't drive here as the massive tree remains and three more must be cut.
Community leaders are trying to divert Con Ed into an area where a 93 year old is in an area that has power precariously.
I need to do a laundry.
I don't want to talk much about my trip to the flood zone on the other side of the Island. It was bad to see good people cold and hungry. Oddly, I want to give a big middle finger to the useless Christine Quinn. While Bloomberg, Molinaro, Oddo and Vallone Jr were out and about the anointed future Mayor was invisible. I hope those in Staten Island, Queens, the Bronx and most of Brooklyn who are tired of the Manhattan first in everything vote for anyone else.
It was nice to hear Curtis Sliwa on the air just as he was in the days after 9-11. Curtis provided a mix of information humor and nostalgia for the old WABC. To the current WABC please ditch Geraldo who is useless and find Steve Malzberg. It was painful to listen to Geraldo who is a disgrace to the airwaves and knows nothing about NYC. Listening to John Batchelor was a real treat and if I ever get an IPAD is something I will do again.
There is a fallen tree out my window. The branches form a huge middle finger about 20 feet in the air. It is real NYC attitude from mother nature after years of dog salutes and squirells stealing its nuts.
The joke when you go to Costo is when are you going to ever use this junk. I finally have room in the freezer but for how long freezing rain or snow is headed this way on Wed and we could see round two of blackouts although not by me. this transformer is clear.
