    8 days after the hurricane and still no power or heat - tried to get into manhattan to work from different office - network sluggish, only black coffee and the ad t hurt just from the walk - power company hasn't assigned crews in many area yet and another storm due in 2 days - my block always seems to be last on the repair list and this could make it even worse

    Omg I didn't realize how hard you must have been hit by the storm. :sad: Are you able to go to a hotel, even for a night or two, just to warm up and give yourself a break?

    That is awful...seems like when it rains, it pours, but when it happens literally, that is horrific

    couldn't get everyone to a hotel - spent days in library to stay warm and charge things - power just came on last night but we have a lot of trees that are still leaning and the next storm rolls in tomorrow - have bronchitis now and am on meds since this afternoon - don't want to refill the freezer in case tomorrow's rain and wind knock power out again - have limited food in the fridge, just enough to fit in the cooler outside so that we won't lose any more - chest hurts and am completely exhausted from trying to stay warm for the last 8 days and running around today to do more storm prep
