Despite whatever you may have read skimming your morning news, there are two very different cities tonight, and they are divided between those who have power, and those who don't.

Those who have can't get to work (ok, that's most of us, as the bus lines spanned entire avenues on their first day running), have groceries reduced to condiments (and Egg Beaters, it was hilarious for people to pick up cartons and say "what do I do with this?), and are perilously stuck with their loved ones in shoebox-sized apartments with NYC DOE cancelled throughout the week. We're lucky to be able to communicate, see past dusk without candles/flashlights, and for updates (and being able to update our families.) 

Those below 40ish Street are affected by lack of wireless voice/data, power, Internet, possibly water, and traffic jams (that I witnessed tonight, due to the mass transit reduction) that are preventing emergency services and basic services (read: food, mail such as paychecks, trash pickup (we accumulate it quickly), ambulances) from arriving. And they're unable to let you know about it.

They are, however, doing what they can, including finding all available coffee shops, office and apartment building lobbies, and bars with hospitality and a permissiveness of daisy-chained power strips for laptops and phones. 

A bike ride to check up on a friend with a newborn at noon yesterday in the West Village was surreal; tonight's venture out was crowded, then tonight's walk was spooky.

sum it up nicely.

My saunter downtown (to cure family restlessness and to avoid a reenactment of The Shining) gave a sobering light to life after dark, and we were made thankful for the little things that we have (even the little apartment.)

Hope to see you all soon.
