Can you say FRUSRATION!

As you probably know by now the power is out in all of NYC. I am in DC and my pregnant wife is “trapped” at our apartment. The good news is that she is OK but has been extremely freaked out for the past few hours as without power there is no news update. She climbed down the stairs (20 FLOORS!) to find company in the building staff – bless those guys – but can only think to head back up (slowly) to try and relax in quiet until the power returns.

There is literally nothing I can do. There is no power in the entire city and it seems to be affecting 5 states! I can’t get back even if I wanted to as there are no flights and no trains… there is nothing. We have only cordless phones and the cellular networks are completely overrun. I’m glad that at least we were able to speak on the phone twice – once from her cell (of course low on battery!) and once from the lobby phone. She is at least getting a low-tech phone from the local Duane Reade (I hope) which should allow us to speak again later…

Stay tuned…
