Most of the black outs are in lower Manhattan and Long Island. I live in Queens in an area that is on high Ground and my lights are still on and it's not bad here with the wind or the rain. It all depends were you are at. Just staying in and staying dry. Right now they are saying on the news that the high tides didn't get up to the heights they predicted, but the subways are going to be messed up for awhile.

Battery City saw a tide of more than 13’. I have also seen photos of flooding in the financial district (where my kids are) and on the lower east side. It is going to be a colossal mess for the remainder of the week unless they are very efficient at getting things back on line. Neither of my kids have cars so are completely dependent on public transportation or cabs.

One weird thing is that I am watching a webcam of Times Square and there are 100s of people just milling around. What the heck? On the weather channel they show some reporter in Battery City park begin blown all over the place and people are strolling around Times Square like it’s a sunny Sunday...
