Hi, good news venusfan, glad to hear you made it OK. :wavey:

Do you happen to know if power is restored to the lower part of Manhattan, around Greenwich Village/NYU campus? Have friends in the area, and I'm worried about them.

I'm sorry for your hassle, venusfan. I thought about all the kids, the elderly, the ill and the poor. Were you in a highrise? I can't imagine how bad that could get.

I hadn't seen anything on the fires, yet.

I was without power for almost 72 hours back in 1999 when Hurricane Floyd passed through. While checking to see how many trees were downed in the woodlot behind the house, I ran across three coyotes. :eek:
