So I have not been blogging much because as a New Yorker I am trying to wrap my head around the carnage Sandy has wrought. To make matters worse I am not in NYC I am in Toronto stuck here unable to get home to help Neil carry bottled water 14 flights up to our lower Manhattan apartment or to take care of his 84 year old mother who is trapped in her 4th flour apartment….as each day without power goes by things get grimmer…that is my rant for the day. As you can tell I’m a tad stressed and more then a little anxious to be home and to have the power back on! If anyone want sot know what Global Warming looks like tell them to turn on the TV and look at the NYC NJ and the East Coast….
