Lois -- thanks for your kind thoughts!

Talked last night with a friend in NJ who was looking toward Manhattan this past Monday evening at 8, when the 14th street power station blew. She said an enormous flaming red ball shot up into the sky--absolutely terrifying to see! Boy, it was dramatic from that vantage point. For us, the lights flickered then seemed fine. And about 5 minutes later--a moment's flickering and then pouf--total blackness.

Incredible how much money some businesses here lost, because they were food-based. A new--and pretty spectacular--restaurant up the street from us had to throw out $10,000 worth of food! Adding to that what they lost in business and still had to pay in rent, their losses are coming in between $70-80,000. I'm sure there are business that will be forced to fold. And so many homeless souls out there!!!
