I have mixed emotions of, "wow, that's great I had the foresight to get out of that place" and wishing I was there to mix cocktails and whip up a huge meal to get everyone together and in a better place mentally. Cities by the sea are ofttimes right in the way of these big, uncaring storms. As it's been pointed out and tested time and time again, New Yorkers are a resilient bunch.
Anyway...I'm traveling for a bit, and I'll have lots of pictures and stories for you soon, and I will be doing so with much panache and bundled in knitwear. Ciao for now!
