Well, that was relatively mild, at least so far.  Doesn't look like any major flooding in the borough as of yet.  The business park lost its power for an hour or so yesterday afternoon, so the office is covered in heavy-duty power cords leading back to the generator power taps.  Technically we're closed, but what am I going to do, sit around the house and watch anime all day long?

Jason woke me up last night to ask if town was on fire, apparently there was some sort of dramatic reddish-purple glow in the skies to his west.  Ended up going out into the heart of the storm, got a bit soaked, best anyone could guess - Jason wasn't the only one to see the glow - is that one of the transformers down at the substation northwest of town must have exploded, but not in such a way as to bring down the power, at least not in town.

Other than the creeks being up and a lot of rain, not a lot of visible damage, at least between here and home.

Yeah, we had a very "meh" hurricaine too, nothing to write home about. I called my mom (Harrisburg) and she said, "I've seen better." Mom has always been able to shut down things in very short order, it's like her superpower.

And on the other hand, the borough president of Staten Island is screaming bloody murder and still digging bodies out of the wreckage, and people are eating out of grocery-store dumpsters in the East Village. Meanwhile, Bloomsberg is apparently going forward with their yearly marathon. Glad I don't live in NYC.
