So a week after
* Sandy smacked New Jersey around like a New York City thinks it does, things have gotten back to... kinda
normal? After four days with no power (which means no heat for me) I bugged out to Metatopia
for the weekend, although that took about 18 hours between going to NYC to catch a ride and getting caught in the mass gas shortage here in the Tri-State Area. Morristown was fully operational, but I've never been so happy to see the lights on in my apartment's parking lot (although for an hour I wasn't sure I was going to see them. Would have been nice if you told on your website that the newly reopened train line stops a dozen stations short, NJ Transit.
) Power is still out in a lot of areas, and some places, like Asbury Park, are going to take years to rebuild. I'm about a mile away from a town that got taken half out to sea.
*Yeah, I heard it referred to last night on the radio several times as "Superstorm Sandy" because it wasn't classified has a hurricane when to plowed through some spots.
Pardon my French, but fuck that bitch, I'm not calling it "super" anything.
