Is it just me?

I don’t know about any of you but I’m just not ready to see darkness starting at 5pm! It feels like I’m just getting my day started and all of a sudden it’s night time.

Power outages, homes burnt to the ground, mass flooding, deaths, and more. It is just unreal, and something none of us really expected.

Watching all the reports on tv all week made me reflect a bit. It’s easy for all the politicians to give their speeches, and most have been doing a great job throughout this. Even the MTA bosses (whom we normally hate) and the ConEd bosses (whom we also normally hate) have been saying the right things to the public and seem to be really trying to get Continue reading In the wake of Sandy
