That's what they're calling it. Frankenstorm: a freak storm that barreled into NYC and gave a shot across the bow to Halloween, not to mention millions of people's every day lives.
Let's start with us: we are okay. We have no power at home; no TV, lights, Internet, phone, etc. We don't even have heat, because we have electric heat in our not-so-new home. Roc has been working 12-hour shifts that are not his regular time, and therefore I am starting to feel as if he is back on Midnights.
I hated Midnights.
This is the first chance I have had to get online in days. I've been Tweeting from my phone, but my short bursts here and there don't really underscore how I feel, or what's really going on in different pockets of the City. I am currently at one of the gyms that I work for...this one particular location happens to have power while several others still don't, and I am rather happy to be at work, as I get to work out and shower. Ah...the things we take for granted on a regular day.
I am overwhelmed by the devastation in the Tri-State right now; it seems as if every where I turn there is loss. I will write more about my thoughts on this soon; I wanted to just check in and let my Police Family know that we are okay.
I suspect that the rest of you are out celebrating Halloween.
Make it Happy.
