I spoke to my wife who works at the World Financial Center. She said everything was out, no busses, or trains. she was headed to the ferry terminal with about 10,000 other people. She told me to pick up the kid and wait for a call sometime tonight.

I'd try a hotel room first.

Man, I sure hope we don't have 3000 people die from this lack of power.






Seriously, it sucks and is a big inconvenience but us Americans always seem to live through it and come out stronger.

Thats what I don't understand...why do people panic and head home and only add to the chaos. Its best to stay put in the office. We have back power, water and some snacks.

Its called UPS...Uninterrupted Power Supply. Or back up power generator in layman terms (I am getting cranky and sarcastic).

The online service was down for a while at my office. They started up the servers. And hence I have light, water, snacks and most importantly, I am online. Wish I had my Blade with me. I would have been home by now.

...I think she left early cause her mother saw too many 'O' faces during the '77 black out.

No power here.  Stocked up on beer, cigars, vodka, and ice so I'm good to go!  

Wife and youngest daughter are visiting in NYC...just heard they're okay.

Here a funny one...day before yerturday, a woman visiting NYC as a tourist, cursed the city and swore never ever to come back to the city when she was mugged and hit with a glass bottle by a crazy dude. It made big news here. News Channels and hotels got together and convinced her to come back to the city by sponcering her entire trip including hotel and limo service. Guess what, she is stuck in a big traffic jam today, sweating away in the heat. Something tells me she is never coming back.

Proto : I bet the French are pissing themselves laughing at you lot after all this spew

Can't even generate electricity. Wankers.
The difference is, this will last less than a day, is covering an area larger than that 'nation', and nowhere near 3000 people will even be injured, let alone die.
That's what happens when you have a country full of intelligent productive people, compared to a bunch of bedwetting pussies that can't even extinguish a tiny little electrical fire in a little steel structure without panicing.
Talking about a bunch of wankers that can't generate power.
french pussies.
